It was a funeral for a man whom I did not know, and I suspect I wasn't alone.
"That wasn't bad, but not as good as living in Athens," he once said. He and Sue moved to Milledge Circle and became the consummate Bulldog supporters. If an event took place, they were there. Jack's motto was to treat your fellow man with respect, dignity, and charity.
At the conclusion of the graveside service at Oconee Hill cemetery, where many Georgia football lettermen are interred, Jack Bush's son-in-law John Parker stood up and invited all those in attendance to a reception, noting that it would be "Jack Bush's last tailgate party."When friends gathered at the Sexton House at the entrance to the cemetery, there was a sign, noting that it was a tailgate party in memory of one of Georgia's most loyal friends who best could be described as a Damn Good Dog.
Travel seems to have become more hassle than some think it is worth, to say nothing of the rising costs involved.
