Growing up and working in Lewistown one gets to know everyone. Plus, living not far from Bus and Anabelle. Wonderful people and their family would do anything for a person. Bus never knew a stranger and loved to talk. My husband and I enjoyed seeing and talking to Bus. He will be greatly missed. God bless Vicki and family. Lorenda and Alvin Spilker.
