Letter from a Lacey Reader

Last week we shared that people are putting Teddy Bears in windows to bring messages of hope and goodwill, and received this response:

“I was inspired when reading your Feel Good Friday comments suggesting to look for Teddy Bears in windows to brighten the mood these days …to display some of my bears made by mother. In my front bay window, I have placed eight teddy bears made after her retirement. She made over 124 teddy bears continuing into her early 90s. I hope these bring a smile to many who pass by my home in Lacey.”

— Beverly (Sherman) Werschkul
