June 10 marks the one year anniversary since you left and went home to be with the Lord.

You are greatly missed in our home, church, and community.

Even though you were a quiet man by nature, your presence spoke very loudly to those fortunate enough to know you on a personal level.

On behalf of the Bush family, Evelyn Linda, Samuel, and Lew, we want to thank the people from throughout Sabine Parish and the United States who have continually called to comfort us and offer well-wishes during our time of grief since then and now.
