This Memory Bear was made for my good friend and next door neighbor Nancy.  Her eldest son passed away last year and she asked me to make this bear from a shirt and tie he wore to his young daughter's First Holy Communion.  It smells of the aftershave he always wore.  His daughter Sarah is now 9 years old and she did not know I was making this.  When Nancy gave it to her she said 'Daddy'!!
You can't tell, but the tie is patterned with mallard ducks.  Sarah named her bear Duck Tie Daddy.
