To honour Alfie, Sue revealed in an Instagram post that she got Alfie’s handprints tattooed onto her hand. She also got Alfie’s footprints inked onto her feet with his full name and date of birth.
“So I’ve had lots of messages and comments asking me what the tattoo is on my hand. So thought I’d put a post up to show you,” she explained.
“The hand tattoo is Alfie’s handprints and I’ve also got his footprints on my foot. I love that I can always see his little hand prints on my hand and that his little feet always walk with me wherever I go.”
