    May the Family find some comfort with the words of Jesus Christ that are to be found in John 5:28,29 to where we find him giving us something to look forward to and that is when he will resurrect ones like Bear back to Good health and the opportunity to live right here on this earth, with his Family forever as the Bible says in Psalm 37:29. So may these words bring some comfort in the days ahead.
