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 sitting 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. They are so big, too. I was impressed. Thanks so much for getting me in touch with this program.”
