Sad News

We just received some sad news by email. My bear friend Emma has passed away peacefully in his sleep at the Animals Asia sanctuary. He was a lovely friend and I will miss him. He was a very big bear, being part brown bear and he was very active. He enjoyed playing outside, swimming in the swimming pool, wrestling and running with his bear friend Hans and playing with his enrichment toys. I am proud to have been his friend. Maybe we will meet at the Rainbow Bridge at last and Emma can show me bear life in the forest.
I have put my Valentine's card to Emma here so you can see what he looked like.

Diamond, we are very sorry to hear that Emma had to run off to the Bridge. You were a very good friend to him, and I'm sure you two will see each other one day at the Bridge. What a happy reunion that will be.

Hugs to you and Lynettea.

Oh, Diamond. Our hearts are breaking. The sudden death of your precious bear friend has touched us all. We can find comfort that Emma's last time on earth was spent in a safe environment where he found comfort and was cared for and respected and loved. We know he will be welcomed by all of us who have crossed before as well as our mum's dad and many special people in her life. Our condolences to your wonderful mum.
Love, Kari, Gran and the cats

Thank you dear friends. I am feeling sad that Emma died. I didn't know him for very long. A brown bear ran up to Lynettea from across her paddock enclosure when Lynettea was at the sanctuary near Chengdu last year, but that bear wasn't on the befriending program. So we were both inspired by Emma being part brown bear and that was why I chose him. What a wonderful friend he was.
