When the Kelly Family sold the family business and was clearing out the basement of Lord's Department Store (which has anchored the Medfield business community for the last 73 years), they found a basket of Beanie Babies that patriarch Bill Kelly (1923-2012) must have set aside years ago.
After Nancy Kelly-Lavin (who, until today, owned the store with brother Tom Kelly) put those Beanie Babies out for sale, a young man brought one particular bear to her attention.
"I have to take this one home with me," she said of the bear that sat on her desk until she packed it up earlier this week.
The tag says...
All good things come to an end.
It's been fun for everyone.
Peace and hope are never gone.
Love you all and say "So long!"
So long Lord's, it's been fun. Thanks for the memories!
