Skyler’s picture is tattooed on Tim's left arm, where she will be forever 14 years old.
“It’s nice… to have her with me, all the time,” Rogers said.
Skyler committed suicide in October 2014 due to bullying, her parents said.
Some of Skyler’s classmates at Red Smith School in Green Bay called the teen “fat,” and “ugly,” her mother, Nikki Rogers, said. The Green Bay Area Public School District declined a request for an interview. A form on the district’s website allows for reporting of bullying incidents.
“She was a very sensitive and soft-hearted person,” Nikki said.
“Everything that was said to her, she took to heart.”
The pain the bullies dealt Skyler made its way beyond the teen.
“[Her younger sister] Kayden is actually the one that found Skyler,” Nikki said.
Her sister’s death motivates Kayden, now in middle school, to confront bullies in action, Nikki said.
