HOUSTON (KTRK) -- The widow of murdered Harris County sheriff's deputy Darren Goforth now has a unique tattoo to honor his memory.

Prison Break tattoo shop posted video of Kathleen Goforth getting a tattoo in her husband's memory.

"'Be the change' is he first part of the Ghandi quote and the change we want to see in the world and what I want to see in the world is men and women in uniform revered and honored," she said. "1984, that was Darren's badge. That was yours baby. I love you very much."

Prison Break tattoo donates a portion of all its proceeds to the 100 Club.

Deputy Goforth was gunned down at a northwest Harris County gas station back on August 28. Shannon Miles is charged with capital murder in the crime.

Harris County commissioners are also considering re-naming a park in Goforth's honor. The park, on Wheat Cross off West Road in Cypress, is currently named Horsepen Creek Park. Commissioners court is voting on renaming the 188 acres as Goforth Park.
