Former President George H.W. Bush Dies at 94

Quote

George Herbert Walker Bush, who as the 41st president guided the United States out of the Cold War and led an international coalition into the Gulf War, has died. He was 94. 

 

In a statement from former President George W. Bush reads: "Jeb, Neil, Marvin, Doro, and I are saddened to announce that after 94 remarkable years, our dear Dad has died. George H. W. Bush was a man of the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for. The entire Bush family is deeply grateful for 41’s life and love, for the compassion of those who have cared and prayed for Dad, and for the condolences of our friends and fellow citizens."

 

Bush was a World War II naval pilot who survived being shot down over the Pacific, led the CIA and spent eight years as vice president before taking the Oval Office. He was the father of the 43rd president, George W. Bush.

I didn't agree with some of his politics but he did the best he could and tried to make things better. RIP.

I suspected that when Barbara died, he would follow shortly after.  I know modern medicine doesn't officially recognize dying of a broken/lonely heart, but you could tell at her funeral he was done, mentally and emotionally I mean.  You don't stay with someone that long and not be effected by their death.

HW was the first president I was old enough to comprehend the concept of, especially during the Gulf War when I started geeking out on the military stuff. I really supported him for a long time, and I still hold an amount of respect for him.

 

McCain, HW, next Dole has to die to make the trifecta and bury the old GOP.
