This handsome bear was ordered by Fay for her mum, made from her beloved Dads clothing.
Craig was a very quiet, peaceful sole and worked hard for his family. He was thee BEST grandad to 7 grandchildren and a wonderful father to 4 children. The adults never got a look in with the kids if Craig was around.
Last August, Craig became unwell and spent 6weeks in hospital, after being discharge Craig continued to work hard for his family whilst still going to see specialists to discover why he was ill.
He was continuously told it was pancreatitis, and it was not cancer. Unfortunately Craig took I’ll again in February last year.
On Valentine’s Day this year he was told he had pancreatic cancer and it had spread.
He went home to spend time with family. His strength was amazing, he worried about Andrea and worried how they would cope as a family. He asked her to keep the strength and the family together. When Craig has visitors round he would put his best on, to ensure that the visitors were as ease, that’s the type of man he was.
Craig and Andrea were married for almost 26years.
3 weeks after Craig was told the awful news, he collapsed at home with his wife, and sadly passed away, at the age of 47. In those 3 weeks they had lots of laughs and lots of tears but his strength remains throughout.
This bear was made from a shirt Craig had bought in Rhodes 2 years ago.
The patch on the bears belly is made from printable fabric paper, the message inside was written in his last Valentine’s Day card to Andrea.
Craig had blue eyes, so we thought it’d be only right for the bear to have too!
I’m glad the bear brings you happiness in the hard times of missing him.
Thank you for your order Fay. 🐻💛💙 #keepsakebear #keepsake #bear #teddybear #memorialbear #bear #memorybear #memorial #bespokebear #handmadebear #handmade #shirt #fabricpaper #applique #valentinescard #handwriting #love #3tothread
