As
soon as I saw them I knew which one my daughter would choose (the one with
the star on front) and she did. I still can’t make up my mind, I love them all.
Thanks again and God bless you,
Bev O’Rozco ____________________________________________________________________________ James Bear ___________________________________________________________________________ Jack’s Bear Hi Bonnie:I’ve been meaning to contact you. When I received the bear, I just got so emotional, it’s beautiful! I can’t wait to give it to my mom. I’m going to give it to her tomorrow, because my sister is coming to take her out to lunch for her birthday, and since it’s so close to Mother’s Day, I’m going to have her open it tomorrow so my sister can see it as well. My sister lives over 60 miles away, and she won’t be able to see the bear up close. I’ll take some pictures and send them to you so you can see her reaction! (and of course post them)The bracelets will be going to 2 people I know who have battled breast cancer (still trying to recover from surgery) and I know they will pass the word on.Thank you so much for what you do! You have touched so many lives in such a profound way. It’s such a blessing what you are doing.
