The family of Gabby Petito spoke at a press conference Tuesday afternoon to speak about the Gabby Petito Foundation, aimed at helping families of missing children.

During the press conference the family was asked about their new tattoos. Gabby’s mother Nichole Schmidt, father Joe Petito, stepfather Jim Schmidt and stepmother Tara Petito said they all decided to get her tattoos last night to feel closer to Gabby.

The family showed their arms where you could see the words “Let it be,” “Believe,” a wave and a triangle with flowers just as Gabby had on her arms.

Some of the tattoos were designed by Gabby.

“We don’t stop remembering Gabby and fighting for other people like her,” Jim Schmidt said during the press conference.
