In just over three years, I had lost four of my closest family members. I learned that one of the hardest things about losing someone is the hollow place they leave in our lives, our hearts, and our arms. Through the stress and strain of planning final arrangements and settling estates, I reached for something to hold onto – a comfort in my time of need. Using the sewing skills my grandmother taught me, I was able to turn my mother’s nursing cape into a memory bear and my grandfather’s shirt into a memory pillow. It didn’t bring them back, but it did ease the heartache. Being able to hold unique, handcrafted items made from materials that once belonged to them helps keep their memory near. Today, I am honored to be able to comfort other families through their time of grief with Kidderbug Kreations.
