I like using keychain by funtoo.org. You can install it with `brew
install keychain`. Then in your ~/.bash_profile add the following:

eval `keychain --eval --agents gpg DEADBEEF`

Be sure to replace DEADBEEF with the corresponding 8 character public
key id. `gpg --list-public-keys`

When you first open a terminal you'll be asked to unlock your gpg key.
Then you'll have to enter it again when you want to unlock a password
using `pass`, but after that you won't have to enter it again for a set
period of time.
