Collection of Bears

My grandmother's bear collection
My grandmother's bear collection

I chose the teddy bears because they were my grandmother's and she passed away. My grandfather gave them to me after she passed away. My grandmother had a teddy bear collection. All the teddy bears in the collection were small, about the size of a fist. When my grandmother passed away my grandfather distributed the teddy bears to my family.  It is also important to me because when I knew my grandmother I was very little like 5, also when i knew her she was very ill (my grandmother had parkinson's) so I didn’t get to know her very much. So the teddy bears are very special because they hold and represent memories of her. Some things I would like to know are:

  • When my grandmother started collecting teddy bears?
  • Why she decided to collect teddy bears?
  • When was she diagnosed with Parkinsons?

I am glad that I have these objects to tie me closer to my family members. They mean a lot to me and my family.
