    I loved Mrs. Bushnell. She was the director of the Westernaires and I was the first captain. She was so special. She will always have a special place in my heart. She will be missed. God Bless all of you

    I have such fond childhood memories of my Aunt Bobbie & Uncle Larry. Summers we spent with them and at my Grandmother's house in Forest Hills, LA. were always wonderful! Prayers for her family. Love to all.
