A bus was waiting for him

Bus in West Roxbury

A T bus on Centre Street in West Roxbury is hardly unusual. But this bus was parked outside the Gormley Funeral Home, its signboard alternating between "John Linso #6808" and "Rest in Peace."

Linso, 52, of West Roxbury, was a 28-year MBTA employee. He died last Thursday. Visiting hours are today.

    Gotta say I like it

    Imagine a bus full of family and friends instead of those depressing limousines for a funeral procession.

    I have some mutual friends and never heard a bad word about the gent.

    Condolences to the family and nice gesture by the T.

    Jack was my landlord for five

    By on

    Jack was my landlord for five years. He was a great landlord (totally bucked the trend of bad landlords in the area) and an awesome guy. I feel horrible for his family. RIP.
