In Loving Memory

This is nothing to do with our beautiful red roses, but something else to treasure and remind us of departed loved ones.

It’s hard to believe it’s two years ago that our neighbour’s husband passed away and it has been a very difficult time for her.
There is a lady who lives just a few miles away who makes teddy bears from the clothes of those who have passed at a reasonable cost.
This is not a novel idea as I have been aware of it for years and think it is rather lovely.
With my neighbour’s permission,Β  this is the bear she had made from a pair of her husband’s jeans and one of his favourite shirts. She has been a little teary today, but is really pleased with it.

Isn’t he beautiful?

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
