His name is Teddy and he is 58 years old. His hair is matted and brown because he has traveled a great deal. At age 2, my Army Dad was stationed in Germany. It only took two days for my Mom to realize that I would not go to sleep without my Daddy. When he found out, Daddy sent me Teddy. I have carried him with me wherever I have gone since the day I received him. He may not look like much, but he is a visible reminder of Daddy's love!
