Bush family mourns beloved patriarch

WT24 Desk

As the nation mourns a World War II combat veteran and a former US President, George H.W. Bush’s family is paying tribute to a beloved patriarch, CNN reports.

Bush died Friday at age 94. In addition to the former President’s achievements over his lifetime, his children and grandchildren remember a man dedicated to his family and serving others. Here are some of their reactions to his death:
George W. Bush: “Jeb, Neil, Marvin, Doro, and I are saddened to announce that after 94 remarkable years, our dear Dad has died. George H. W. Bush was a man of the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for. The entire Bush family is deeply grateful for 41’s life and love, for the compassion of those who have cared and prayed for Dad, and for the condolences of our friends and fellow citizens.”
He was more than a great man; he was a good man. His courage was matched by his compassion; and his dedication to country was equaled only by his devotion to his family. Gampy, we love you and we will miss you. But we will never forget you.
Along the way, he married the love of his life and was a father to six, including a president and two governors. But to me, he will always be Gampy. The man who taught me to fish in Maine, to throw a horseshoe and to swing a baseball bat lefty.”
