When we lose someone we love, other priorities in our lives lose their importance. But it was a blessing that Martin and I were in Victoria for the Woodend Teddy Bear Show at the time of Steve's death. We were able to drive from Woodend to Morwell that day to be with his daughter, Alma, and to grieve with her and Steve's friends.

This was another blessing - to have the comfort of friends around us, and to enjoy the opportunity of sharing our mutual love of teddy bears with visitors to this special show, before returning to Morwell.
Some of my critters found new homes at the show, and say farewell here.
