A piece of Grandpa Don

Dear Max,

Today Grandma Cheryl gave you a very special teddy bear that she had custom made out of Grandpa Don’s favorite sweater. He wore it all the time in his last years and it was a Christmas present from Mom and me years ago. He’s cute, like the vintage handmade teddy bears from the early to middle 20th century.

It’s so important you know who my dad was, and still is, to me because he had such a large impact on my life, and ultimately yours. Now you have something to cuddle, something to say your prayers before bed with. You have a piece of him with you. 

Grandma Cheryl gave you something very special today. It’s one of a kind, just like Grandpa Don was to me and all of us. Cherish it.
