Buddy is lost at St. Paddy's Day Parade
It went as most of Jackson, MS St. Paddy's Day Parades, nice weather and fun times. One family was there celebrating the parade. As they returned to their car it was realized that Buddy the bear was missing. Dad got everyone to stay in the car and he ran as fast as he could to try to find him. No luck. When he got back to the car, his wife couldn't just leave without trying too, so off she went with no luck. Day passes, sad night for the whole family. Buddy has always been in this one little six year old girls' life. The next day, her maternal grandmother just took a chance to go downtown and search herself. She was talking to a neighbor on her cell phone letting her know what she was doing when she squealed to her delight the bear was hanging by a thread in the gutter as she peered down at him. She is now cleaning him up to offer him once again into the arms of one ever grateful little girl. That is one Grandparent of the Year right there!
