I'm going to get you guys tired of me yet, but since I can still squeeze out one more post, I'll show you where I'm headed next, before I go:

Below is a Picture of My & My Brother Jim's family, from back in 2021, when they took Jim's ashes up to Saw Creek for eternal rest. Saw Creek was one of our favorite Trout Streams & Deer Hunting areas.
Years ago, Jim & I put our parent's ashes in "Red Rock Run", which is just a bit down stream of Saw Creek.
Then in July of 2021, this gang "Below" took Jim's ashes up. I was not able to make that trip.
Bear Jr held everyone's hand, one by one, so nobody would fall in the Creek, while they each poured part of the ashes into one of our favorite Trout Hot-Spots.

Now they all will be doing the same thing with my ashes. Then this journey will be over.

Until we Meet,
Bear


Bear Jr, Mrs Bear, and Bethany in the top left corner,

If you look closely you can see a part of Saw Creek behind My Sister and her husband George, on the far right & behind the left end.

The hell you say... That will never happen


Welp... Here come the tears again... John... You are TRUELY an amazing man... I hope I am at peace with this scenario (like you are) when the time comes... I just can't imagine how proud your family is of you... I know I am ...

Again (still tearing up).. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your service and your dedication to SMF ... You have changed the way we all cook in one way or another ...

I love you Brother and rest easy with no worries ... You will be back with your family at some point...

And I must say.. That looks like the PERFECT resting grounds... No outside world.. ohhhh the peace and quite ...

Looks like Heaven on Earth. I think you'll be just fine there. Hard to type with tears so I'll just say thank you once again for all you have given. Peace be with you...

So inspiring! Its sad, yet so great to see such a beautiful family come together and salute lost family members in such an honoring way as a tradition! I truly feel that is the way to go and wish I had half as beautiful of a place to do so!
