plus bears that had been donated to Patrol
Programs at the time in 2001. These include the
14 dozen donated by Mr. Russ Berrie of the
Russ Corporation in Sailor's name. We have sent

mommies at Babycenter's November 99 board. These
mommies shared many milestones with Sailor as they
have babies born the same month she was. This scene
depicting an angel reaching for a baby girl is perfect
for our situation and will always be a treasure.

This one is a birthstone bell that represents the old saying,
"Every time a bell rings an angel gets her wings."
