@flotus, knowing how close Barbara Bush was to White House residence staff, is bringing George Hainey, the former head maitre’d, and Buddy Carter, an usher, as her guests, per an aide.

Aides say that President Bush 41, known for his wildly festive socks, is paying tribute to his wife today by wearing what he calls his “book socks.” They are described as beige with brightly colored images of books signifying Barbara Bush's life long advocacy of literacy.

This photo of George H.W. Bush sitting in front of his beloved wife's casket pierced my soul.
George & Barbara Bush were married for 73 years. They suffered through losing a child together. They made it to the WH together. They watched their son become president.
What a life. pic.twitter.com/xSha0O0e8r

“Be kind. The moments I regret most are the ones where I could have been kinder.”
