Stitching Memories Bear

DENVER — A seamstress in Colorado makes connections for family members grieving the loss of a loved one, or holding onto the good memories as they struggle through tough times. Corrine Kurtz has made more than a thousand memory bears and quilts, taking clothing and sometimes more precious items from loved ones.

News5 Photojournalist AJ Vega visits with Corrine and families who have received her works from Twins at a Time, LLC to explore the stories of lasting meaning for the families.

About the people in this piece:
Since the death of Brianna Canacari, Babette has created The Bri Project to create a better informed world by educating and making more people aware of the dangers of playing the “Choking Game” and also spread awareness about Teen Suicide across America.

Hunter Zimmerman, who has the very rare genetic mutation of Phosphatidylinositol N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase subunit A (P.I.G.A.) is one of only 12 male children diagnosed. He's one of the 3 oldest survivors. Hunter was a healthy baby when at 4 months old he started having seizures. At the age of 2, he suffered a massive seizure that wiped almost everything out from his brain. His motor function is that of a 6-month-old at his current age of 8-years-old. He made improvements by recently rolling over for the first time by himself.
