Thank you for going above and beyond what we asked of you. The added picture inside the backpack was so thoughtful. We all LOVED it.  It is a very handsome bear. Lisa was in tears when she saw it and the baby picked it up immediately and started hugging and kissing it. I think her Daddy was there with her in that moment. Thank you for making such a wonderful gift for them.

I am truly amazed and just love them beyond words. You all really do have a gift in creating these bears in honor of families. You have given me a gift to honor and remember my Dad and Grandma.  Thanks is not enough.

I wanted to let you know that I received the bear today. It's everything I hoped for. I am SO happy and sad at the same time. I can't thank you enough for the wonderful work you do to help families cope with tragedy. Thanks so much for using such care in constructing the bear.  I know my mother in law will be thrilled when se receives it. 

God Bless!

I wanted to thank you again for taking the time to create this precious gift.  I couldn't be more pleased with the bear.  It's beautiful and I am ever so thankful.


Oh my gosh, the bears arrived today and are absolutely adorable! They are the sweetest things - and your craftsmanship is very beautiful! My mom sewed a lot in her younger days and would have approved - especially with how the stripes matched up! You really have a gift for these!  ...I feel my mom's love and warmth in the little bears! And can tell they were created with love. Can't thank you enough!!!
