Teddy Bear - A Christmas Past by 

I came across this Christmas bear whilst looking for Statues.

Its hard to know whether I should post this image … Names have been blurred for privacy.

Its good to remember family and friends who are no longer with us during the festive season.

    Clyde…this really got to me…I’m the only surviving member of my family and this just brought me to tears :( So…it’s a really wonderful emotive piece…just really sad…

  • I am so sorry to do that to you! :( For some reason this photo always puts a lump in my throat – emotionally charged. Thank you very much for sharing your experience though – Clyde

    It is a wonderful even though sad picture, Teddies are loved by all and this one I bet was loved a lot. If you feel you can enter it in the following group it would be much loved there too. Your choice, Shirley

    Best Wishes.
