Patton Oswalt Is Floored By Fans' Tattoos Inspired By The Words Of His Late Wife

In April 2016, Michelle McNamara, crime writer and wife of famed comedian Patton Oswalt, died in her sleep. McNamara was just 46 and, needless to say, her unexpected death devastated Oswalt. Their daughter was about to begin first grade, and Oswalt was facing the daunting task of raising her alone. Opening up about McNamara in an interview this past October, the comedian told People about one of his wife's favorite sayings:

In a touching turn of events, it seems McNamara's words inspired some fans so much that they tattooed them onto their bodies and sent photos to Oswalt.

Oswalt tweeted pictures of the tattoos for the world to see:
