Dr. Bugella's Marker

Ha, I found another plaque next to a park bench off the Grand Rounds trails in Minneapolis.

"Upholding one's ideals is the greatest gift to a cherished friend
Dedicated to Dr. Brian R. Bugella
May 1987"

The plaque and bench were put in by myself, Gary Bugella, Brian's brother and several of his friends, including Paul Schlafer and Paul Hensel. We celebrate his short life each year at the this site. He died unexpectedly at 29 in 1986. We are glad that so many people make use of this bench and are able to view the thousands of daffodils that we planted there in his memory. Gary Bugella

He was a good man, a good friend, and I miss him still. My wife stumbled across this on the web and glad she found it.

Gary & Jill,
I MISS your brother everyday.
Love always, Cindy
p. s. It's impossible to begin to describe him....

If you didn't know Brian, it's impossible to begin to describe him. Gary & Jill,I miss him everyday.
And I'd do anything to have done things differently. I promise I thought I was doing what was best for him and his future. I thought I would have been selfish trying to encourage him to stay here at UCLA. It WAS the hardest thing I've ever done. And the most regretted.
Love always,
