Farewell to pres­i­dent

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

It’s with great sad­ness that we lost a great pa­triot, vet­eran, true friend and a strong be­liever in Je­sus Christ. Like­wise, he be­lieved in heaven. This per­son is for­mer Pres­i­dent Ge­orge H.W. Bush.

Back in 1988, his wife Bar­bara came to El Do­rado to cam­paign for her hus­band. The down­town mer­chants were there to greet her. One of the mer­chants gave her some muffins and other treats to take on the plane with her. Bar­bara passed away back at the early part of this year.

Their son, Ge­orge W. Bush, came to El Do­rado and spoke to the high school stu­dents.

Their mem­ory will linger on for­ever. Now they are both reunited in heaven, along with their daugh­ter. There are riches in heaven like a glo­ri­fied body, a robe and a crown, not to men­tion a man­sion not made with hu­man hands.
