- Bush family spokesman Jim McGrath on Sunday night honored the service dog who accompanied George H.W. Bush during the former president's final months.

Joining George W. Bush as eulogists Wednesday: Alan Simpson, the former senator and acerbic wit from Wyoming, Brian Mulroney, the former Canadian prime minister who also gave a eulogy for Reagan; and presidential historian Jon Meacham.

Former first lady Laura Bush said her tour of the White House Christmas decorations Tuesday made for a "sweet visit" during a somber week.

Christine Dube, who lives in Vermont, but travels to DC periodically for work, said she believes Bush was from an era where people did "the right thing and you care about America and that comes first".

President George W. Bush, son of the late president and himself "No. 43" in the line of presidents, led the Bush family in the ceremonial duties at the arrival of the casket and the early commemorations.

Former President George W. Bush will be among those eulogizing his late father on Wednesday, CNN reported Monday, adding that several other former presidents are expected to show up at the funeral.

"President Bush was a great friend and ally of the United Kingdom. So we got quite a lot done".

As official Washington paid its respects inside the Capitol, Americans queued up outside the Capitol Visitor Center for their chance. He will be buried alongside Barbara Bush, his wife of 73 years who died in April. The coffin will be flown from Texas to the Capitol on board Air Force One, and then back on Wednesday, and Sully will be there every step of the way. "And President Bush was a bipartisan president". The service will take place tomorrow at The National Cathedral in Washington.

A humble hero of World War II, Bush was just 20 when he survived being shot down during a bombing run over a Japanese island. Flags on public buildings are flying at half-staff for 30 days out of respect for Bush.
