Ex-Secret Service agent: Barbara Bush's code name was absolutely perfect

22 Abril 2018

- Barbara Bush's funeral will be a family affair, at least as much as it can be for the wife of one president and mother of another. You always said that you were one of the luckiest women to ever live, but Gans, I am filled with gratitude because you were ours.

"His Holiness Pope Francis offers heartfelt condolences and the assurance of his prayers to President Bush and all her family", said a statement from The Vatican.

In her letter, Bush Hager shares a story about how she and her sister once ordered peanut-butter sandwiches to the White House bowling alley. She was a driving force.

The commanding officer of the USS George H.W. Bush described Bush as a "truly remarkable person" and said the crew endeavors to proudly carry her legacy and enduring example of devotion to family. "She was a rock".

"I just go blindly on my own dumb way and have fun and try to be helpful", she told reporters in 1992. She inspired millions to provide a window to a larger world of imagination, knowledge and beauty by helping someone learn to read.

"When you're at NRG Stadium and Barbara and George Bush walk in and you look around, people are crying", said Chief Acevedo.

Not long after, a letter arrived from Barbara Bush, dated Nov. 18, 1988, with a return address of "The Vice President's House, Washington, D.C.", along with the dress. "To avoid disruptions due to added security, and out of respect for the Bush Family and friends attending the service, President Trump will not attend", the White House said in a statement.

But those close to Mrs. Bush knew very well The Enforcer was no shrinking violet. I really appreciate your kindness.

Abe also expressed his 'heartfelt condolences' to the Bush family during the Wednesday evening joint press conference at Mar-a-Lago. The motorcade was small and unassuming - traits that Mrs. Bush appreciated - consisting of a few Secret Service vehicles and one unmarked New York police vehicle. "We are so gonna miss her. I thought she would be here forever", said Houston resident, Linda Harvey.

Mrs. Bush's funeral is Saturday in Houston.

A by-invitation-only funeral is scheduled for Saturday at St. Martin's and Mrs. Bush will be buried at the George H.W. Bush Library and Museum in College Station, next to her daughter, Robin, who died at age 3 following a battle with leukemia.
