President George H. W. Bush to be laid to rest in Texas

HOUSTON – A week of national mourning for “41” concludes Thursday with an invitation-only funeral at former President George H.W. Bush’s beloved local church and a private burial service at his presidential library 100 miles northwest of here in College Station. Eulogies at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church will be delivered by his son, former President George W. Bush, his best friend and former secretary of state, James Baker III, and his grandson and Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush. Then the casket will be loaded onto the Union Pacific Railroad’s Presidential Train Car, traveling through Texas cities such as Spring, Magnolia and Navasota to College Station and the campus of Texas A&M University. His final resting place will be on the grounds of the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum alongside his wife and their daughter, Pauline Robinson Bush, who died from leukemia short of her 4th birthday. More than 10,000 mourners paid their respects to Bush overnight after his body arrived at the church Wednesday from Washington. The service at Washington National Cathedral drew President Donald Trump and all the living former presidents – Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and George W. Bush. , USA TODAY
