2-year-old Malachi Snyder’s teddy bears aren’t just ordinary toys, because they’re made from the uniforms of his policeman father who was tragically killed two months ago while on duty in St. Louis, Missouri.

Police Officer Blake Snyder, 33, was fatally shot at close range by 18-year-old Trenton Forster after responding to a disturbance call on October 6th, 2016. His wife Elizabeth still hasn’t been able to explain to Malachi where his father is, but at least he’s got his bears to keep him company. They were made by a family friend as an early Christmas present, and each bear contains a very special message sewn onto its foot: one reads “love you always”, the other one “always with you.” They can’t replace Malachi’s father, but at least they’ll get to see the little boy grow up.
