Hello, all.  Anna and I can never thank you all enough for the loving tribute to our Bear last Sunday.  He would have loved that there were as many heartfelt laughs as tears at his memorial.  We miss Bear's big-hearted presence in our home more than words can ever express.  As his dear friend reminded us, Bear believed in life before death.  So help us and help yourself in your grief by listening to your heart's deepest desire -- and know that Bear is pulling for you as you take that next step to bring it into reality.  From loving and really broken hearts at the moment, B&A
