Written by Marie "Lady Bear" Marler better known as author Rie McGaha. She is the owner and publisher of Dancing with Bear Publishing. Marie has written a beautiful love story between herself and her late husband. His name was J. Bear Marler and he was larger than life with a colorful history. Unfortunately, Bear passed away in December 2010.
This poignant love story will touch your heart as Lady Bear shares how she met him while he was in prison. It was love at first sight and they were married. Out of prison, they became united as Christians and raised their children together while working on their own ministry. Bear was a man with a huge heart for helping people, especially bikers,children and anyone that the Lord brought into his life. A big man and a hopeless romantic; Bear embraced a gift that few have and that was empathy for his fellow man.
Marie often helped to support the family with Bear and both believed that they were soul mates. Bear always knew what to do to keep their love for each other alive. Good communication in all areas of their marriage made things tick. Marie is open about so many aspects of their marriage and it's helpful to all.
I enjoyed this story very much and I would recommend it to anyone who struggles in their marriage and life. Bear and Marie are good examples of what it takes to forgive and love always through the trite expression, "thick and thin". She knows because of a sweet visit one special Christmas evening, that Bear is watching and caring for her from heaven and yes, waiting too for her to "come home".
J. Bear and "Lady Bear" were involved in Set Free Soldiers for Christ, Gladiators for God, Angel Tree Prison Ministries, Humboldt County CA. Bikers against Child Abuse, and many other ministries.
His memory is cherished and he will never be forgotten as a man who loved and lived big.
