Gayle and family,
My sympathy to you on the loss of your mother. Every time I drive Cedar Lake Road, I always see the "Bushway" house. That house is a St. Louis Park landmark to me!
You grew up there so many years ago . . .when we both attended Westwood Junior High.
I send caring thoughts to you and all of your family on the loss of your mom.

To the entire Bushway family....Please accept my condolences for the loss of Beverly. I was your neighbor in the early 1960's and always enjoyed being friends with all of you. Although it's been many years since I've seen any of you, I've thought of you often. I stopped by and saw Bev and Bud about 15 years or so ago and Bev remembered me right away. I always remember you as a big, happy, loving family and that will help you get through this difficult time together. I would love hearing from any of you. Be strong for each other and take care of Bud.

Our condolences for your loss.

Bev and Bud have been fantastic neighbors to us for 15 years.

We will never forget:
Waving to Bev when we were on the way to/from work and daycare each day.

Bev's joy when we brought our daughter over for visits. She always got a kick out of when our daughter would ask for a cookie or a treat.

Bev's excitement at sharing the latest jigsaw puzzle that she was working on.

We enjoyed the stories she shared with us of her friends and family, as well the neighborhood history.

We will miss her.
