Illustration on the front of Mitch Albom’s novel, “The Five People You Meet In Heaven,” right after it was finished. Despite the title, the book has almost nothing to do with religion. I decided to get this tattoo as a reminder that life has to end, but love doesn’t. That if life was governed by fairness, no good person would ever die young. That death doesn’t just take someone, it misses someone else, and in the small distance between being taken and being missed, lives are changed.
"The version represented here is only a guess, a wish, in some ways, that my uncle, and others like him - people who felt unimportant here on earth - realize, finally, how much they mattered and how they are loved."
