Bereavement Bear with poem

$ 140.00

NEW! For your convenience you can now order a bear complete with the poem.

This Bereavement Bear is made entirely from your loved one's clothes and includes this special poem on your bear's chest that says, 

"These are the clothes I used to wear. 
When you hold me, know I am there."

This is a heat transfer placed directly onto the bear in white or black letters

Your finished bereavement bear measures a perfectly huggable 17 inches tall and features embroidered eyes and nose for added charm and safety.
