(We received this letter last week and were so touched by it, we wanted to share it. Thank you so much, Doris! You’re BEARy sweet to write after all these years.)
Dear Vermont Teddy Bear Company,
I am writing to tell you I have been to The Vermont Teddy Bear Factory. I was on a tour with Mayflower Tours and you were one of our visits. On 9-29-97 we stopped so I’m sending you the pictures I took for my photo book.
I did not buy a Bear because I did not have a little one then. When my daughter was to have a baby she wanted me to make bears for the room. After I found the right pattern I made many bears. I have eight grandchildren and now nine great grandchildren so have made them all bears. I love them. That’s why my son in El Paso, TX started sending me [your] Bears. I have six now.
I have been wanting to write so I finally have done it. I hope you like the pictures I took in 1997. I do have the negatives.
Well thanks. I do love your Bears.
