wrapped up in faded yellow fur, and as such, he commands affection long after he is outgrown.” — Pam Brown
Created by soft sculpture artist Tammy Hendricks in memory of her great nephew, Bentley, this cuddly teddy bear brings back moments of comfort and love by making memories tangible. Tammy hand-painted Bentley’s footprints on the pads and dressed the little bear in Bentley’s jammies.
