RIP Daddy Bush – enjoyed fishin' and huntin' with you. Enjoyed campaigning in 1988 with you as well. Say hello to Barbara for me – she sure looked out for me during your inaugural parade 🙂

The last veteran of World War II to serve as president, George H.W. Bush was a consummate public servant and a statesman who helped guide the nation and the world out of a four-decade Cold War that had carried the threat of nuclear annihilation. https://t.co/rEMMGLlfTA
