The Teapotter Tickle challenge was to bring tatoos. Today, I bring a tatoo celebrating the memory of my sweet, younger brother Bobby, who passed away suddenly w/o warning, seven yrs ago March. In addition to being the best brother, he was an amazing person. Loving, caring, thoughtful, kind, giving, accepting, tolerant, very intelligent. Two memorials were held for him. The room was nearly filled at the first one and at the second, there was standing room only. That is how exceptional he was. He touched many lives. I miss him every day, more than words can say. I celebrate him and his life!

Wow, Gaby, your sad story brought tears to my eyes, this is a very beautiful card to honour the memory of your brother. I lost my dad when I was young and yes, you do think of them every day, don't you? A card to cherish forever :)

What a beautiful tribute to your brother, Gaby! I couldn't think of a better tat to wear in tribute of someone we love, than this sweet angel!! Bobby may have passed away seven years ago, but he is with you every day, as he is a part of you!
