I always did love and respect my Aunt Lucy and Uncle Bob; they were my favorite relatives durring a long and challenging childhood. I looked up to my older cousin's Dan and Gary and was fascinated with Garys train sets! And Aunt Lucy's cooking! Mama Mia! No one could or would ever say anything to diminish the Love and Light that is Aunt Lucy or my Uncle Bob.
I disserviced myself, my daughter Criesta, 30, my son Beau, 23, Placement grandcubs, Jordan and Joey from Criesta, by not staying better connected With my extended family through the years. I pray they knew how much I have always respected them, the gratitude I have for making me feel safe, needed, wanted, and loved durring every visit; with Aunt Lucy's thoughts and wishes via pen to paper; or the forever confident and loving tone of every word spoke no matter what was going on good bad or indifferent, with the magic and mystery of the telephone! Memories I have forever cherished and think of as I rear my own Cubs and Grandcubs who foundly call me "Papa Bear!" I truly hope that Aunt Lucy and Uncle Bob knew how much joy, gratitude, and contentment that has become the nature of who this cowboy is, a true man honored and privileged to have the incredible life I have today! HOWEVER, I KNOW THEY KNOW NOW AS THEY CAN TRULY SEE AND BE WITH ME IN HEART AND SPIRIT!! I JUST KNOW IT IS SO AND IT MAKES MY HEART SING! Aunt Lucy, tell Uncle Bob I miss him, and we will be together again all to soon in this flash in the pan that is ones lifetime's . Peace, Love, and Respect:
Papa"Ski"Bear, Hangtown Ca.
