There are some who bring a light so great to the world that even after they are gone, the light remains.

Memorial Teddy Bear
Memorial bears are a keepsake that is made in honor of the special person you have lost. Volunteers use materials from your loved one to create a bear that is as unique as they were.
Here is what one family member said about the bear program: “The bears are just precious. Louise did such a great job on them. She put a lot of thought and detail into making them. I like the little pocket with a verse in them and the jointed arms and legs. I have them setting on a little bench and when I walk by I can see Roger and Mark in those outfits. That’s a wonderful program you offer. Their so big, too. I was impressed. Thanks so much for getting me in touch with this program.”
