~For my sister, Mary Kathleen

My tattoo is a symbol of my sister, Mary Kathleen Hickman. My sister was 12 years old when God unexpectedly called her home to be with Him on September 11, 2010. My tattoo reads, “It was then that I carried you” from God Loves You – John: 3:16. During the toughest time in my life (when I lost my sister) God carried me. During this time I was only able to see one set of footprints in the sand rather than another set walking beside me. God not only carried me then but he continues to stand by my side everyday throughout this journey
