  • USPS to suspend mail service Wednesday to honor George HW Bush

America's national farewell to George H.W. Bush began Monday as the 41st US president was placed in the US Capitol to lie in state.

"The elegance & precision of the last two days have been remarkable!"

Bush's coffin will arrive today in Washington, DC, where he will lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda until Wednesday morning. But, like any American politician, Bush also endured-and dished out-and the kind of vicious mockery that came with the profession long before the Donald's unhinged age. "I'm here out of respect", Whelan said. "I wasn't the biggest fan of his presidency, but all in all he was a good honest guy doing a really hard job as best he could". The couple was married for 73 years, longer than any other USA presidential couple. 'I was proud to be his leader in the Senate because I liked what he stood for. "He seemed like a honest and decent man and you couldn't argue with his qualifications". It's the most high-profile event in a week of proceedings that will remember the remarkable life of the president who died on Friday at 94.

On July 26, 1990, Bush signed into law the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities. The church will also hold a second memorial service for the former president at 11 a.m. ET Thursday.

Following his presidency, he spent his later years engaged in humanitarian work that would have made a difference in the lives of thousands of persons affected by disasters across the globe. Once steadied, Dole saluted.

"He was just a high-quality man who truly loved his family", Trump said Saturday while in Argentina.

He spoke of first meeting Bush as a 29-year-old entering politics and of a letter his son, an enlisted Marine, received from Bush.

Sully's service didn't end with the death of her master.

Former presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter and George W. Bush will also be in attendance.

The speaker of the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan, praised Bush as a "great patriot".

Political combatants set aside their fights to honour a Republican who led in a less toxic time and at times found commonality with Democrats despite sharp policy disagreements.

During this service Bush's grandson George P. Bush will speak as will Bush's best friend, James Baker, Bush's chief of staff and Secretary of State and Secretary of the Treasury. Trump ordered the federal government to close during the official funeral at the Washington National Cathedral. Flags on public buildings are flying at half-mast for 30 days out of respect for Bush.
