I too, lost my husband coming up on four years in March...so you have my sympathy and my empathy...we were married for forty years as well. I have some of his clothes I just couldn't part with but didn't know what I wanted to do with them; I think you've given me an idea! Thank you for giving me something to think about doing!
And things WILL get better...it just takes awhile, and to be honest, "awhile" sometimes feels like "forever" but it does happen, I promise. Will say a prayer for you...

GOD BLESS YOU! You know I am praying for you all the time. The bears are beautiful - all three of them. I am sure the girls will treasure them as you do yours.

Oh, I am sorry for the loss of your husband. What a wonderful way to have a memory of him. My mother quickly gave away all my Dad's clothing, so I have nothing personal for a memory. Your daughter's will love these "Dad" bears. That is a very nifty idea!

I know your pain Olivia's Grammy - I lost my hubby May 5, 2012 after 38 years of marriage. It is so hard in the beginning - just stay busy.

So sorry for your loss. These bears are enchanting.

I have been making memory bears for the cancer center, and they sure can keep you busy. But are such fun to bring to life. Somehow the clothes bring that persons personality to the forefront, and are such a comfort. I lost my DH to cancer in June, and my mother in June of 08, so I have two of my own bears on the shelf

sorry for your loss
Love the bear idea. My brother just passed away and I have his clothes. I was going to make everyone a small quilt but I really like the bear idea. Is there a pattern for this?

What a fabulous idea - I like it.

I, too, am a widow - my husband passed away in 1995. A few years later I met another fabulous person and it is like we picked up the world and got going again. Good luck, my feelings are with you.

So sorry for your loss. I think the bears are a wonderful way to keep your memories close.
