Reminiscing in the Bear Den

by Tom DeBruyckere

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Tom DeBruyckere has never met a stranger. That’s a running theme in Reminiscing in the Bear Den, where he shares stories of the people he’s met, the people who have filled his memories, and the people who became his friends. These interactions shaped his world view and this collection of stories illustrates how, no matter how long the person remained in his life, the connection remains strong.

This is a memoir of Tom DeBruyckere's life, not a true autobiography as not all his important life events are included.  These are life experiences that he remembers the most and that provide him with great memories as he spends time in his "Bear Den".  Hopefully the reader will find the stories entertaining, but most importantly it will encourage the reader to reflect on their life and find enjoyment in their "Bear Den"
