This is the guy that has been keeping me busy this last week or so.
I am calling him,
"A Mourning Bear"
A colleague sadly lost her father some months ago.
She recently asked me if I could make a bear from her father's clothing to help her son through the grieving process.
She also wants him have a keepsake of his grandfather.
I hope both, she and her young son like him and that Levi (as hubby as nick named him) will help them through a difficult time.
I suspect this bear is going to get lots of hugs from both mum and son and
maybe sometime in the future he will help them recall many happy memories of their much loved father/grandfather .
Mum has very kindly allowed me to use the photo she sent me on my blog, so you can see this smiley little boy with his new companion.
Mum said " he recognized his Grandad's shirt straight away".
She also told me, he took his Grandad bear ( as he is now called) to bed and for the first time he went to bed without tears.
