My deepest and sincere condolences to his family. Bear was my neighbor for eleven years. He was my very first friend who took me under his wings and gave me the history of our neighborhood. Taught me the ropes so to speak. My fondest memories will always be of me making a bagged lunch for each of us, climbing over the fence and sitting on his back steps, watching the goings on over on North Avenue while we shared our meal. He loved my pound cakes and fresh maters' I grew in my garden. He and my older brother from Atlanta got along like long time buds. They admired one another. I'll be missing my buddy Bear for the rest of my days~ he was a one of a kind, gentleman. Rest In Peace my friend.
