We didn’t find it in time for the wedding, but now Mr. and Mrs. Tom and Mary Jo do have a newer version of Mary Jo’s favorite lovie!
[pinit] My fiance, Mary, told me the story of her “Ella” a while ago. We are getting married in August, and as a wedding day present I would love to have a like new version for her. I will try to get her to tell me the whole story again, so I can send you more details.
It is something like this.
She adopted Ella when she was about 1-2 yrs old. It belonged to her brother first, but was never played with. I guess she found her and just never let her go. This was almost 24 years ago. She has never gone any where with out her and she is now loved into a very used condition. I will send some pictures. She has had some surgery throughout the years too. No more music box and she is stuffed with baby pajamas by her grandmother.
While I was deployed to Iraq, I left my Teddy bear (1981 Gund named Macintosh) with Mary.
[pinit] I have had him since I was 3, and I have loved him into a very used condition also. Mary took great comfort seeing Mac and Ella together. She took strength in their friendship and kept them both close throughout our 15 months apart.
I searched for a blue version of Ella for hours on-line. I found the picture from you. When I showed it to her she squealed in delight and it is now her desk top background. She giggles and smiles every time she sees the picture.
Sorry this ended up so long.
Thank you for any help.
If you have as soft a heart as I do, you didn’t mind this being long at all! I look forward to reading more from Tom. I found what I thought was his bear and sent the link to him, with a suggestion that they might want to use the bear and elephant as Wedding Reception decorations. Well, they beat me to it!
They are going to be in our wedding!! My mom is making a little pillow for Mac to carry with the rings. He will be carried by the ring bearer. Ella is going to sit in the basket of flowers and be carried by the flower girl.
They travel every where with us. Sometimes I see people look at them and us and seem confused that we don’t have little kids. Ha ha ha. But Mac n Ella are our little kids.
