Thank you for stopping in. I have been making dolls since 1994, and when I lost my wonderful mother to complications of Alzheimer's and breast cancer, I began to make Memory Bears. I started with one for myself. It brought me great comfort seeing the familiar clothing as a teddy bear, and when I held it in my arms, it somehow made me feel like I had my arms wrapped around my wonderful mom. It was so therapeutic for me, that I decided to make them for my children, my sister and her children, and our grandchildren. When I gave them to my family, it brought such joy to see them smile, laugh, cry and hug the bears close to their hearts, that I decided this was something that I wanted to do for others.
