Both my grandma and my pappap passed away within the last 18 months and while I didn’t live in the same city or country as them I do miss them. They were my last surviving grandparents … sort of forces you to grow up no matter how mature or old you are.
On the weekend, when I was in PA visiting my aunt, uncle and cousins, they gave me grandma and pappap bear. The bears are actually made with my pappap’s flannel shirt and one of my grandma’s turtlenecks. It is very touching – I can actually remember them in those tops and it is like having them with me.
Now I don’t know where in Toronto to get bears made but it doesn’t look very complicated – let me know if you know where you can convert a flannel shirt in to a bear!
