Memories are sacred and meant to be cherished,
Especially for those that we love. 
So when mom/gram left this world for her next great adventure,
her spirit inspired me and gave me a shove.
As I cleaned out her belongings and tossed many things away,
Some of her favorite clothing, I felt compelled had to stay.
A lady named Vicki from Hartville, Ohio, Whose talent defies belief,
Was the perfect connection to transform mom's favorite sweaters
Into bears and some monkeys that would ease our grief.
Gray, sage and ivory; Aqua, pink and white,
A rainbow of her clothing used to create such delight.
So FOR YOU is this gift made with love and great care,
It's your very own treasure - A "MEMORY BEAR".
Especially for you

Wee wedding gift, bride & grooms pjs (Scotland)"This little bear was made for you
  from lace that is 83 years old.
  Your Nana's wedding dress was made from this
  at least that is what I've been told.
  A lady named Vicki from Hartville, Ohio
  gave so much love and time
  To make this bear for you today
  As you remember the 14th day of May!"
