“The legacy of Ge­orge H.W. Bush will be for­ever etched in the his­tory of Amer­ica and the world. It is a life­long record of self­less pa­tri­otic ser­vice to our na­tion.” — James A. Baker III, sec­re­tary of state in the Bush ad­min­is­tra­tion.

“Through his es­sen­tial au­then­tic­ity, dis­arm­ing wit, and un­wa­ver­ing com­mit­ment to faith, fam­ily, and coun­try, Pres­i­dent Bush in­spired gen­er­a­tions of his fel­low Amer­i­cans to pub­lic ser­viceto be, in his words, “a thou­sand points of light” il­lu­mi­nat­ing the great­ness, hope, and op­por­tu­nity of Amer­ica to the world.” — Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump.

“I will be for­ever grate­ful for the friend­ship we formed. From the mo­ment I met him as a young gov­er­nor in­vited to his home in Ken­neb­unkport, I was struck by the kind­ness he showed to Chelsea, by his in­nate and gen­uine de­cency, and by his de­vo­tion to Bar­bara, his chil­dren, and their grow­ing brood.” — For­mer Pres­i­dent Bill Clin­ton.
