George W. Bush to eulogize late father

George W. Bush to eulogize late father

A photo of President George H.W. Bush's service dog lying downbeat beside the casket of his old master on Sunday has spread across social media, causing an outpouring of emotion.

The 41st USA president's body is scheduled to lie in state there from Monday to Wednesday.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the first official to speak in the Rotunda, described George HW Bush as a "humble servant" and "a principled leader".

The 41st president died Friday at his home in Houston at 94.

Many spoke of Bush's role in a bygone era of bipartisan civility in USA politics, a sharp contrast to today's bitter divisions in the age of President Donald Trump, a fellow Republican.

H.W. Bush will be honored at several public and private events in Houston and Washington before his burial on Thursday in Texas. As a true patriot and a visionary, President Bush will forever be viewed by people with disabilities and their families as a hero through his efforts to enact the Americans with Disabilities Act.

He failed to win a second term after breaking a no-new-taxes pledge.

Donald Trump has ordered the federal government closed on Wednesday for a national day of mourning. Many have also heralded Bush's 73-year marriage to his wife, Barbara Bush, who died months before her husband in April 2018.

"He was just a high-quality man who truly loved his family", Trump said on Saturday while in Argentina for the G20 summit. His death also reduces membership in the exclusive ex-presidents' club to four: Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Shortly before leaving the service, he married his 19-year-old sweetheart, Barbara Pierce, and forged a 73-year union that was the longest presidential marriage in US history until her death. The train will take about 2½ hours to travel roughly 70 miles to the city of College Station, home to Bush's presidential library at Texas A&M University.

Sully, a yellow Labrador who became Bush's service dog in June, will make one last trip ith the former president, accompanying his casket to Washington, D.C., a trip McGrath says has the call sign is "Special Air Mission 41".

George H.W. Bush. Thank you for your service sir.
