The Andy Bear Project

Andy Bear Project.pngAs times passes, our loss and grief does not go away, it changes.  The memories that we have, we will have forever.  The legacy and spirit of your loved one is celebrated through the sharing of these memories.  We at Anderson Funeral Home understand that you will continue to experience these changes, and we want you to know that we will continue to walk with you on this journey.  We were honored by the trust you put in us during your time of greatest need, and we want to invite you to take another step with us in your journey toward hope and healing.


At Anderson Funeral Home and Crematory, we have a wonderful way to share the memories of your loved ones, called “The Andy Bear Project”.   On this day, families are asked to bring in clothing and or blankets of their loved one, and together with staff and skilled volunteers, we will use those materials to make a bear to remember your loved one’s legacy.  This will be a time of sharing, as you pour your love into creating your own, special “Andy Bear”.  You are invited to attend and can create a bear for each person or each family.  We will be there to help with the creating of your “Andy Bear”. Come prepared to share memories, tell stories, laugh and cry, as we remember these special individuals.  Lunch and refreshments will also be provided for you during our time together.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.  We look forward to meeting you and hearing more about your loved one’s legacy!  Please check our News and Events Page to learn more about our next Andy Bear Project.
