A while ago on I was going through Twitter and looking at posts. I know we have been using #TeamTyler to remember him and I think that is awesome, but I also found another hash tag a lot of students at Godwin have been using a lot as well – #LiveLikeTyler. I think it is pretty awesome that Tyler inspired such a positive movement over at Godwin, it makes me very proud to say I am his father, and I hope that people everywhere continue to live like Tyler whenever they can. I know I have been inspired to.
Ever since I found that hash tag the message really stuck with me. Also, Michelle has an awesome picture of Tyler jumping in the air. Every time I looked at that picture the words “Live Like Tyler”s come to mind. I decided that both of those things are something I want to remember forever. I decided to do something I never thought I would do. I contacted a local tattoo artist named Matt Brotka. We worked together on my idea. I sent him an initial drawing of my thoughts. We talked though it and what he came up with is truly amazing. From now on I will always be able to look at my arm and remember to “Live Like Tyler”. I am so thrilled with my tatoo and that I can share it with everyone.
Let me know what you all think in the comments!
P.S. For the family we met at Vinny’s tonight. Thank you. You also sure know how to Live Like Tyler!
