  • George HW Bush Remembered Locally

Mourners pay their respects at the casket of former US President George H.W. Bush as it lies in state inside the US Capitol Rotunda on Capitol Hill in Washington, US, December 4, 2018.

Bush's body will be transported by a motorcade Monday morning from a Houston funeral home to Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base, a Texas Air National Guard base.

"We're going to heaven", Baker said. "He really does. He was a very special person".

Bush died Friday at his home in Houston.

Former U.S. President George Herbert Walker Bush, who kept a battered baseball mitt in the same drawer in the Oval Office in which Donald Trump hides his tax returns, skydived back to Washington for a somber and symbolic funerary week on Monday, 26 years after he was tagged out by Bill Clinton while trying to stretch a single term into a double.

After services in Washington, Bush will be returned to Houston to lie in repose at St. Martin's Episcopal Church before a burial on Thursday. Retired Air Force Tech. Pence's son had just completed a landing on the USS George H.W. Bush aircraft carrier and Pence wrote to Bush.

Memorial services began Monday to honor the late President George H.W. Bush.

President Trump has ordered the federal government to be shut down Wednesday for a national day of mourning.

The 41st president of the United States, Mr Bush is best known for leading the U.S. into the 1991 Gulf War, a military operation to expel Iraqi forces from Kuwait. CBOE Global Markets will close its USA exchanges on Wednesday. But there is one opinion that almost everyone shared: Bush's service dog, Sully, is a very good boy.

Bush spokesman Jim McGrath tweeted a photo of the presidential plane on a tarmac Sunday afternoon.

Thomas d'Aquino remembered fondly a 1993 fly fishing trip with Bush and Harry Steele on the Adlatok River in Labrador in a blog post written last summer.

"A great joy to welcome home the newest member of our family, 'Sully, ' a lovely, and beautifully trained, lab from America's VetDogs".

The president had a form of Parkinson's disease, and Sully could open doors, pick up items and summon help through a "get help" button.

Past and incoming House speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat, exchanged a warm hug with former president George W Bush and came away dabbing her face.

Trump, who has not always uttered kind words about the Bush family, offered nothing but praise in the hours after the former president's death was announced.

He did not attend the funeral this year of George H.W. Bush's former wife Barbara, even though former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton were there.

Mayor Sylvester Turner is hosting Monday evening's event featuring music and community leaders in front of City Hall.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Wednesday has been designated as a national day of mourning, and that the White House flags have already been lowered to half staff to honor Bush.

Bush often sported bright socks, sometimes with loud, unusual patterns.
