    Mend a Heart – Sew a Memory Bear

     

    While nothing can ever take the place of a loved one, a memory bear can bring comfort to the grieving families touched by hospice. Memory bears are crafted from articles of clothing of hospice patients who have passed and are sometimes adorned with sentimental momentos and accessories. They become a treasured keepsake for families.
