"I'm missing my mother-in-law and role model tonight", tweeted former first lady Laura Bush. "She leaves behind a remarkable legacy in her family and their public service. We have been inordinately blessed, and we know that".

Barbara Bush first signed the Sunnylands guest book in 1988, according to the Trust's news release. The vice-president and his wife stopped by our seats before takeoff.

Barbara and George were the longest-married couple in presidential history. Clinton often joked he spent so much time with the Bushes that he'd become like a member of the family.

It was Barbara's visits to AIDS hospitals in Harlem that nudged her husband into endorsing additional federal funds for fighting the disease when the Reagan Administration was still balking. Even as a congressman from Texas, Bush voted for the 1968 Fair Housing Act and supported access to birth control.

Bush will lie in repose from noon to midnight Friday at St. Martin's Church at 717 Sage Houston.

He adds: "So cross the Bushes off your worry list". The foundation partners with local programmes and had awarded more than $40m to create or expand more than 1 500 literacy programmes nationwide as of 2014. Bush's pearls, after all, became synonymous with her own soft power in the political sphere.

Barbara Bush, 92, the matriarch of a Republican political dynasty and a first lady who elevated the cause of literacy, died on Tuesday.

Former President Barack Obama also released a statement on the former First Lady's passing, calling her a "point of light" in service to others.

Former First Lady Barbara Pierce Bush died yesterday at her home in Houston, Texas.

Larry King: "Our dear Barbara Bush". The funeral service is by invitation only at the Bush family's church. Mom kept us on our toes and kept us laughing until the end. To us, she was so much more. "She reminds us of a time when strong, principled people governed our country with civility, humility and grace". George H.W. Bush was the country's 41st president from 1989 to 1993.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday that Putin sent a telegram to the former president offering his condolences.

Barbara Bush was friendly but more focussed.

McGrath says Mrs. Bush was "surrounded by a family she adores, and appreciates the many kind messages and especially the prayers she is receiving". When asked what the secret to their enduring love was, Barbara said it was keeping a sense of humor.

He plans on keeping the speaking engagment, CBS 2's Lauren Victory reports. "It's a waste of your time and my time". They had six children including former US President George W. Bush, and former Florida governor and one-time presidential aspirant, Jeb Bush.

"I had a very warm personal relationship with her and her husband, George, a relationship I continued with them after George had left the presidency".

"George Bush knows how I feel", Barbara Bush had said. "But whatever the era, whatever the times, one thing will never change: Fathers and mothers, if you have children - they must come first". I'm a lucky man that Barbara Bush was my mother. Barbara has been scheduled to moderate a 9 a.m. Thursday panel called "Next Generation Game Changers". For instance, she once said as her husband ran for president that abortion should not be politicized. "And as a result of her soul being comforted on the deathbed, my soul is comforted". "May she be at peace with the Lord".
