  • Country stars remember Barbara Bush

"So cross the Bushes off your worry list".

George H.W. Bush was at his wife's side when she died and had held her hand all day Tuesday, according to Jean Becker, chief of staff at the former president's office in Houston. Both tough and gracious, a woman who knew her share of sorrows but made it all look easy even so.

"But the truth is the outpouring of love and friendship being directed at The Enforcer is lifting us all up", he said.

"I firmly believe we can not tolerate discrimination against any individuals or groups in our country", Bush said. "So cross the Bushes off your worry list".

At age 92, the Bush matriarch declined medical treatment for her declining health and ultimately passed on Tuesday, April 18. He is 93 and confined to a wheelchair with a Parkinson-like illness.

Also a year ago, they both wound up in the same Houston hospital - the former president with pneumonia; his wife with bronchitis.

Their son, George W. Bush, on the other hand had two terms as president, winning re-election in 2004 after a campaign stoking fears about same-sex marriage and in support of a US constitutional amendment that would have banned it nationwide.




"Whatever the era, whatever the times, one thing will never change: Fathers and mothers, if you have children, they must come first". Bush is also survived by 17 grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. In 2013, she attended the same-sex wedding in Kennebunkport, Maine, of her friends Bonnie Clement and Helen Thorgalsen. "Barbara will be missed greatly, and we are sending our heartfelt prayers to President George H.W. Bush and the entire Bush family during this very hard time".

43 also spoke about his mother Wednesday at The Leadership Forum at the Bush Center in Dallas. He says he's at peace with his mother's death because his mother "was at peace".

"Folks just loved her here", Lawson said.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb has directed flags across IN to be flown at half-staff to honor former first lady Barbara Bush.

So how many pearl necklaces did Bush have? "She's what a first lady is supposed to be". She served her family with love and compassion. Bush is that she wasn't afraid to show her intelligence or her opinions.

In 1984, her quick wit got her into trouble when she was quoted as referring to Geraldine Ferraro, the Democratic vice presidential nominee at the time, as "that $4 million - I can't say it, but it rhymes with rich".
