Having spent time with the Bush's one thing I always admired about (MB) that's what I called her was her love and dedication to Cheryl and George and the lengths she went to for her kids and the hours she worked. I was Cheryl's boyfriend for 5 or 6 years and it took her that long to warm up to me and trust me or a least I think she did. I will never forget our vacations in Matagorda and stringing barbed wire so the horses could not get out. I am a better person having known her and I appreciate her allowing me to be part of her family.
You will be missed my friend God bless you.

I met Christine 40 years ago when George and I were paired together in Big Brothers and Big Sisters. George became my "Little Brother" for life.
Chris was trusting enough to allow her precious 10 yr old son, George, to ride on the back of my motorcycle. We had some fun rides and he was hooked to the point that he became a motorcyclist while in the Air Force. I'm pretty sure he still has that Harley and his sports car today. Chris was a hard working single mom who worked later in her life than most folks. She was proud of her George and Cheryl. When George was deployed by the Air Force is various assignments around the world, if he hadn't communicated with her for a few days, she would call me to see if I had heard from "that boy." We'd compare notes as to whom knew what about him. I was with her at George's graduation and commissioning ceremony at Texas A&M. I thought she was going to burst with pride. Later in George's career, as he neared retirement, she couldn't wait until he retired and came home safely. I was fortunate to attend George's retirement ceremony at Ft Carson, CO nearly 4 years ago. George has spent most of his time since retiring caring for Chris as her health diminished. Having been a combat officer in Vietnam, it was a pleasure to have been a part of George's military life and to be a part of Cheryl's and Christine's lives too.

Christine was a lovely, strong lady that I am so glad I had a chance to know. I will miss our telephone conversations. She always wanted to talk, just not for very long at a time! I know she is at peace but I will still miss her. My prayers are with George and Cheryl.

As we celebrate "Aunt Chris" this week we all remember what a strong and unselfish person she was! We may not have visited as much as we would like but she always checked on us every so often. I will miss those phone calls but know that she is in a better place ... no more suffering, no more sorrow! She loved her children so much and inspired us all with her love of animals! She was a special Aunt and will be greatly missed! Thoughts and prayers to Cheryl and George. We Love You!

We here (Kroger Pharmacy) are all very heart broken for the loss of Mrs. Christine Bush. She was definitely one of our favorite customers. She was sharp, kind, and at times, pretty funny. She had a laugh that was contagious and made us all smile. Mr. Bush, we hope these words find you comfort in knowing how much she made our days. Please come by the pharmacy once in a while just to say hi or to catch up. We don't have to not see each other anymore. Please take care, please keep in touch. We are all going to miss Mrs. Bush very very much.

With our deepest sympathies,
Kroger Pharmacy
Dustin, Monica, Marie,

George and family, so sorry to hear about your loss. Besides talking to your mom a couple of times, you are the only testament I have to her character, but from that I know she was an outstanding woman of faith and persistence. May you have peace knowing she has entered her eternal reward.
