George HW Bush buoyed by tributes to wife

Former first lady Mrs. Barbara Bush applauds for Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush during a campaign event in Greenville S.C. on Feb. 19 2016

Yet Bush was not only at peace with this, but prioritized her husband, family, and literacy above all else-by choice. The first lady and principal Braxton sported remarkably similar hairdos, clothing and accessories that day, as revealed in some photos taken by local photographer John Brewer. "Trump without Stone is akin to George W. Bush without Karl Rove or Barack Obama without David Axelrod".

"But it will not surprise all of you who know and love him that he also is being stoic and strong, and is being lifted up by his large and supportive family".

"But we're even more grateful for the way she lived her life - as a testament to the fact that public service is an important and noble calling; as an example of the humility and decency that reflects the very best of the American spirit".

She describes herself in her Twitter messages as an Arab-American and a Muslim-American woman.

Former First Lady Barbara Bush poses for a portrait on August 23, 2001 in Houston.

Former president Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary were also reportedly due to attend. "Barbara Bush drank so much booze, if they cremated her ... her body would burn for three days".

Bestselling authors across the country are voicing support for Fresno State professor Randa Jarrar, and say the fallout of her tweet, which called Barbara Bush "an awesome racist", is an unfair overreaction. But the truth is the outpouring of love and friendship being directed at The Enforcer is lifting us all up. We have faith she is heaven, and we know life will go on - as she would have it.

"Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and incredible racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal", Jarrar wrote on Twitter.

"My dear mother has passed on at age 92".

We asked what they remember about Barbara Bush.

As the world prepares to bid farewell to the former first lady, so many Houstonians are anxious to show their appreciation for her service to our city and to our country.

"Barbara Bush was a nasty drunk".

"She loved those children, you could tell".

Kuwaiti leader Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah sent letters of condolence to the Bush family, according to the state-run news agency KUNA. "In her loving memory, the City of Houston and the Houston Public Library Foundation will work to complete the master planned improvements to the Barbara Bush Literacy Plaza in front of the Jesse H. Jones Central Library".

Gordon had known Bush since he was a child.

Anastasia Maroney, an artist in Carmel, Indiana, put on pearls her mom gave to her when she was a teenager the morning after Bush's April 17 death.
