    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

    Hello, beloved friends and family.  The service yesterday for Bear was simply perfect - filled with beauty, tears, belly laughs, and, of course, exceptionally good music.  Anna and her friends choreographed a dance to one of their favorite songs by Miley Cyrus, "It's the Climb."  I just know how much Bear would love the idea of his little Anna and her beautiful ballerina friends dancing up and down the aisle at his memorial!  A friend videotaped it, and we will make copies available to those who want one - especially friends who could not make it to the service.  Just email me and let me know that you want a copy.  We all felt that it was an effort worthy of Bear - so many people really dug deep to call forth their best to honor a truly good man who loved you all dearly.  Our eternal thanks, Bridgett

    Hi, all.  I realized this week that one of Bear's heros is playing in Seattle tonight.  He considered Steve Earle to be a true American hero for his commitment to social justice and his courage in publicly confronting his own personal demons.  Not to mention that he is an outstanding songwriter and performer.  Steve Earle is playing at the Moore theater, and I am going to honor my Bear!  Cheers, bc
