Fox fur coat

In Attire

My object a fur coat and hat set. It is furry and soft! It is made of fox fur. It is a light red color. The coat was bought by great grandpa for my great grandma to go to the White House. It was around 3,000 dollars. They went to the White House because he was a frogman in World War II, and he was honored by President George HW Bush because he risked his life everyday defusing bombs.  

After the Army my great grandparents got married. Why this coat is special is because they really didn’t like spending money. Even when they had money, they didn’t spend it because growing up they had nothing. The coat was my great grandmother’s best attire. This coat was the first nice thing that was bought in my family. Sadly they have both passed now.

This coat stays in the mom’s closet. The coat was passed down not to me but to my mom from my great grandmother. The coat is important to my family because it is the first nice thing that our family bought.
