A Different Kind of Bear

     Okay, this story got me a little. It's an article posted today on the Illinois news server Post-Gazette.com about a 74-year-old woman, who turned her late husband's hunting jacket into a teddy bear.
     Jackie Sansone, of Champaign, Ill., had long enjoyed hunting with her husband of 54 years, Henry Sansone Jr. Henry passed away last year, and Jackie decided to commemorate their anniversary in June of this year by sewing a memory bear. She chose the hunting jacket as material for the bear, which she named Hank. There's a photo of her with the bear at the link.
     What can I say except that I think it's a beautiful second life for an old hunting jacket. -K.H.

What a beautiful way to keep her special person's memory close to her.
