George H. W. Bush, 1924 - 2018

We certainly lost a great man this week,  so few like him remain. 

He was a kind and gentle man who still went all the way to the very top, the Presidency of the United States.  To say that he was of a different time is so sadly true.  
              Senator Bob Dole (95), fellow WWII veteran, gives the
                perfect homage to his President and friend, George
George is back in Houston now.  After 10:00 a.m. CST services at his church, St. Martin's Episcopal, he will be taken by train to his internment at the Presidential Library in College Station, Texas.  The train will travel slowly through several small towns before arriving at Texas A & M at 3:45, with internment at 4:15. 

Presidents are required to plan out their state funeral when they first take office.  One last job done well.  Thanks, George.
