“I purchased a bear for my mama, made from my Daddy’s pajama pants. He has been with Jesus for nine years and my mama has not been able to cry; until she got this bear. She hugged it so tight, and cried! Nine years of heartache and grieving, were finally able to be expressed.
Thank you, Carrie, for making such meaningful memorials for people who have lost a dear loved one! 💕” ~Elizabeth, Kansas

I have cherished making Carrie Bears for almost 20 years. It has been my privilege to connect with so many who are making their way through their journey of grief. Story after story has filled my heart. Your stories have changed how I live and grieve.
The last few years, in between making Carrie Bears, I have been driven to write a book! As I interviewed families to get details for "Something to Hold Onto," I felt as if heaven and earth met together to make a connection. An overwhelming feeling of love for dear ones that have gone on.💞
This collection of stories from grief to hope creates a bond we feel to each other in personal and mournful ways.
Everyone has a story—-everyone. I am grateful we share together in loss to build each other up in hope. My hope is that these stories will help heal in the journey of grief for you or someone close to you.

To purchase this book, "Something to Hold Onto" see link in bio.
Lots of Love and Hope in healing for the New Year♥️🐻#carriebears #bearingoneanothersburdens #hugsfromheaven #sharetogether #somethingtoholdonto #grief #everyonehasastory
