I remember my parents saying Gov. Busbee was the best governor this state has ever had. They admired him very much and I remember feeling so proud that his signature was on my very first drivers license. He will be fondly remembered in our hearts always. May God bless the Busbee family.

Governor Busbee, many months have passed since you left, but your memories are still forever in our hearts and souls. I was born in Vienna but moved to Perry. My grandparents, Warren & Ellen Cason lived 8 miles east of Vienna in the Tippettville community. I loved to go to Cordele to Turton's grocery store, dress shop and I believe there was also a florist. The Turton's WERE Cordele!

"A Workhorse not a Showhorse"...how catchy the phrase in your political campaign. I was thrilled to help get you elected and enjoyed the adrenaline of election night and attending the inagurational party at the old Marriott. Atlanta was a fun and exciting time and you and Mrs. Busbee brought so much class to the Governor's Mansion. I remember when the tornado came over us in 1975, sounded like a train, but then there were no trains in NW Atlanta. Felt comfortable a Vienna guy was in charge of our beloved Georgia.

I'm writing you today when another great "Gov" will be joining you around the heavenly political round table--our friend Ernest Vandiver. I do trust y'all can come up with some good ideas to help us once again. Seems politicians just aren't cut out of the same cloth as you two. Sam's about the best thing we've got left in both parties. Maybe he'll get back in the arena before it's too late. Whatever you and the others can do to send any messages his way will be appreciated. "If anyone can, Sam can."

Thank you again for the wonderful memories.
I was working at Hansell Post Brandon & Dorsey during your governorship. How did King & Spalding get all the good politicians?
Blessings and love to all the Busbees and Turtons. You made Vienna and South Georgia very proud. May your spirit always fly on the wings of angels. Thank you for walking your talk...something more politicians could learn.

To the Busbee Family,
Mere words can not express how the Governor made you feel when you were in his presence. When he saw you in a crowded room...you could always count on a friendly nod and "hello" & possibly the wink.
My aunt was a childhood friend of Richard Russell and the Governor would "kid" me not to let anyone know.. for fear it would harm her reputation.
We lost Aunt Susie At 96 just a month or so before the Governor. She told me "all the good ones are going on now and I'm starting to miss them".
I'm sure she counted the Governor as one of the "good ones".
She's probably showing him how to catch "pan fish" with a Cane pole as I type.
Goodbye Governor...and tell her I said "hello" with that nod of yours....
