George HW Bush's service dog Sully pays touching last tribute

George HW Bush's service dog Sully pays touching last tribute

The Bush family's post-White House spokesman Jim McGrath shared the photo on Twitter Sunday with the hashtag #remembering41.

While the services are split between Washington and Texas, many in Kennebunkport, Maine also feel a personal connection to the late president.

"George H.W. Bush, a patrician New Englander whose presidency soared with the coalition victory over Iraq in Kuwait, but then plummeted in the throes of a weak economy that led voters to turn him out of office after a single term, has died". His final resting place will be alongside Barbara Bush, his wife of 73 years who died in April at the age of 92, and Robin Bush, the daughter they lost to leukemia in 1953 at age three.

"The President will designate Wednesday, December 5th as a National Day Of Mourning".

In Texas, students, staff and visitors have been flocking to Bush's presidential library on the campus of Texas A&M University in College Station. A memorial service at the National Cathedral will follow.

Funeral plans have been set for former president George H.W. Bush.

The two-year-old labrador was assigned earlier this year as a service dog to Mr Bush who used a wheelchair in the last years of his life.

"Through his essential authenticity, disarming wit, and unwavering commitment to faith, family, and country, President Bush inspired generations of his fellow Americans to public service-to be, in his words, "a thousand points of light" illuminating the greatness, hope, and opportunity of America to the world", the statement read even though Trump had previously mocked Bush's "points of light" speech.

"He was just a high-quality man who truly loved his family", Trump said on Saturday while in Argentina for the G20 summit.
