Those fortunate enough to spend time with Bee outside of work know what it meant for him to gather around bonfires with family and friends. He often referred to these as ‘Spirit fires’, because they marked a sacred space for sharing the gifts of spirit: stories, dancing, laughing, prayer and song. Throughout his journey he touched so many hearts and the reach of his light was widespread. Let’s unite our individual flames at this time and present Bee with a collective representation of the love and admiration we feel for him. Together, we may build the most beautiful Spirit fire to ever ‘Bee’.”
