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
