A Keepsake for the Ages

DSCN1672When the phone rings and a voice says that they would like to request some memory bears, I know that someone has lost a loved one, that someone is grieving. I listen as they tell me what they would like and who they have lost. We talk about the clothing they would like to use and for whom the bears are intended.

Each call is personal. Each family is someone that I can help by taking their loved ones clothing and creating bears that will have more meaning for them than even they can imagine at the time. The bears will be there for them to “hold and hug.” They will be there for the generations to come, a keepsake for the ages.
