RIP George H.W. Bush, 94.
The longest living president in American history & a great man who served his country with huge distinction in so many ways.
Barbara, his wife of 73yrs, died in April, leaving George broken-hearted.
Today, they are reunited. ? pic.twitter.com/vBBPL2axuB

George H.W. Bush will be missed and long remembered for his leadership, his decency & his essential kindness. Served his country in so many ways. Made public service about country, and America’s responsibility in the world, less about party. Our thoughts are with the Bush family.
