‘Nothing Eases the Pain’ for ‘Alaskan Bush People’ Star

Losing a parent is never easy — not for any of us. But for a celebrity like Bear Brown, it can be even harder just for the simple fact that he remains in the spotlight no matter what happens in his life.

The Alaskan Bush People star has been working through his grief every day. But he spoke from a place of truth on Monday when he said that “nothing eases the pain.”

“In truth, nothing eases the pain,” he said. “I just try to be the best I can for those around me and I’m trying to enjoy every moment of every day that I have with ones I love! Life is far too short to take for granted the time we have!”

Bear Brown also shared some advice for his fans.

“Live, love, laugh,” he said. “Be free and remember you never know when it’s the last time you’ll see someone you care about, or when it might be your last day! Don’t take it for granted. God bless.”
