Happy ending! “Londey” the bear is back home

Followup on the search for “Londey,” the beloved bear whose disappearance broke the hearts of a local family because he was a gift from a relative who died this summer (as explained here): He’s home! Just got this note from Rebekah, along with the photo at left. She wrote, “I just thought I’d pass on the update. LONDEY HAS BEEN FOUND! This morning we received a call from Alki Cafe! Please enjoy this photo of Luka slathering her Londey Bear with kisses after they were reunited. Thank you so much for posting our story. We love West Seattle so much.”

    I wish all of our stories and life experiences could have a happy outcome like this…we only get to be a child once and a positive like this will carry on for generations.

    Welcome home Londey.
