"After my mother passed away and we were going through her items, I remembered hearing about the Memory Bears created by Doane House Hospice. I took a couple of her favourite blouses and asked if they could be made into Memory Bears". 05-27-2015
 
“I am amazed at how beautiful these Memory Bears are, and can’t thank you enough!  I know that my grandchildren will be very happy.  I don't want them to forget their Grandma. They were the light of her life.”

 

“My husband worked for the TTC for many years.  Thank you for incorporating parts of his uniform, including his Badge No., into the Memory Bears.”

 

“I will always treasure these comforting pink bears.  This blanket comforted my daughter when she was ill in hospital.”
