  9. I only knew you on Facebook for 14 years, but you were a better friend to me than most of the people I know. You gave me all kinds of good advice and always made me laugh, even the last words you messaged me when you were at the end. I know God is taking good care of you and you are loved unconditionally. I already miss talking to you and I hope we can meet up someday in Heaven! I know you are up there, because you were one of the purest souls I ever knew. God Bless you, my friend. There’s no more pain and suffering. I love you.

  10. Bear you and I certainly caused some havoc on Facebook, and yes of course many chased us, you claimed you were a drop bear and everyone was scared to come near you incase you dropped from a tree, funny how some fell for our jokes, but we always meant well..You and I were brothers and had some great times, Sorry I could not be by your side at this time, but i am sure we will meet someday..God bless RIP love always your bestie PEZ, { Steven Gee} and family

  15. Reggie Bear,
    Oh how you liked to talk specialy on a Monday morning be4 work over a cuppa and yes if Collingwood had won it was going to be along talk but if they lost let’s just say we got more work done when they had lost, for those great years working with you at Marion’s Cakes it was a blast,.

  16. Dearest Uncle Reg,
    You’ll be sadly missed, you were always kind and loving towards me. I’m sad that I never got to know you better although despite the distance between us we always kept in touch through text or letters and cards. You were always prompt in reply and always enthusiastic in communicating and keeping in touch. I’m sorry you never found you true love to marry because I believe you had a lot of love to give. Now you are in heaven and with my mum, your sister and our Heavenly Father with all the love anyone could ask for. Till we meet again, we love you Uncle Reggie Bear. 🐻♥️
    Lots of love, Jovita and Family. xo🙏♥️
