SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- If you visit the Potawatomi Zoo this year, you'll see a new sculpture, dedicated to a woman who loved spending time there.
Susan Goodchild died of breast cancer on Earth Day four years ago.
Since then, a sculpture has been in the works to honor Susan and her love for the zoo.
The sculpture, created by local artist Victor Riley, is of three bears, each representing love, laughter and living.
“When you look out there and you see that bear and you see me on the shoulders of my sister there's a lot of love there,” said Rod Goodchild, Susan’s brother.
“The inspiration is everyone that can relate with their children family the love throughout the zoo, that's really my inspiration," said Riley.
Oak sculptures by Riley can also be seen near the South Bend farmer's market.
