Doug Wead, a former special assistant to George H.W. Bush, said he expected an eventual degree of healing in the Bush-Trump relationship.

Typically, this was not the way that the former first lady liked to travel, as it drew undue attention. "To us, she was so much more". You taught us humility and grace.
