Re­ac­tion from around the na­tion

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - GEORGE H.W. BUSH: 1924-2018 -

“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.”

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump and first lady Me­la­nia Trump

“I al­ready miss the great­est hu­man be­ing that I will ever know. Love you Dad!”

For­mer Florida Gov. Jeb Bush

“Ge­orge H.W. Bush’s life is a tes­ta­ment to the no­tion that pub­lic ser­vice is a no­ble, joy­ous call­ing. And he did tremen­dous good along the jour­ney. Ex­pand­ing Amer­ica’s promise to new im­mi­grants and peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties.”

For­mer Pres­i­dent Barack Obama

“Few Amer­i­cans have been — or will ever be — able to match Pres­i­dent Bush’s record of ser­vice to the United States and the joy he took ev­ery day from it; from his mil­i­tary ser­vice in World War II, to his work in Congress, the United Na­tions, China, the Cen­tral In­tel­li­gence Agency, the Vice Pres­i­dency and the Pres­i­dency, where he worked to move the post Cold War world to­ward greater unity, peace, and free­dom.”

For­mer Pres­i­dent Bill Clin­ton and Hil­lary Clin­ton

“Pres­i­dent Ge­orge H.W. Bush served our na­tion with ex­tra­or­di­nary in­tegrity and grace.”

For­mer Vice Pres­i­dent Al Gore
