He was our best friend — a wonderful and loving dad, granddad and husband and he will be dearly missed.”
Bear finds comfort in knowing that he is now able to pass down fatherly advice to his son, River, who he likes to call “Little Billy.” Bear and Raiven Adams recently just celebrated River’s first birthday.
