After enjoying breakfast early Sunday morning, Gerald “Gerry” Alexander Bushell passed away quietly and without warning while watching the sun rise over the garden. Gerry was a talented draftsman who took pleasure in designing many of the homes built in the Cavan/Millbrook area over the last 30 years. Husband to Rosemary, father to Alex and the late Jennifer, sister to Diane Berlet (Ron), Sally Burkett (Kevin) and brother to Steve (Pam). Gerry was very passionate about saving Needler's Mill, the last structure of its kind in Millbrook. Currently under threat of demolition, the family is asking that in lieu of flowers, a donation be made to help save the mill. Information can be found at

How wonderful to read all of these betuaiful stories about beloved grandparents. I am a grandmother. A very joyful grandmother. So thankful to be blessed with these precious grandchildren. You have all spoken of your love for your grandparents and how they are still with you. And that I know will be the experience of my own grandchildren for I have given them my whole heart and it is an eternal gift that keeps giving from one generation to another. I would like to say to all those who wrote of their beloved grandparents and what they meant to your life know that not only did they bless and enrich your life, but you also gave them eternal treasure in your undying love.
