They Gave Him A Teddy Bear. When I Found Out Why, I Was Sobbing

They Gave Him A Teddy Bear. When I Found Out Why, I Was Sobbing

Genevieve Lopez

Lisa Freeman lost her son in battle. He was only two weeks in Afghanistan when his duty ended. Since he was a small boy, he always dreamed of joining the Marines and fighting for his country, so she wanted to remember him in a way that represented his childhood dream.

Five years later, Lisa pulled out her sewing machines, slipped on her craft glasses, and with his military uniform he passed in, created a teddy bear, stuffed with cotton and love. It was a way for his sisters to remember their brother who passed too soon.
