The State Funeral for the 41st President of the United States (US) George H. W. Bush, who died at age-94, November 30, 2018, has concluded at the National Cathedral, here in Washington, DC. With a heavy heart and with great respect, I bid farewell to a decent and kind family man, who served our Republic honorable.
More so today than at the time he served in the Oval Office, 1989-1992, the decency and civil decorum of our 41st President is very self-evident.
I never met George H. W. Bush, but one incident that occurred during his hotly contested run for the White House in 1988 and another incident, in 1990, after he won the White House, have both impacted and shaped my life today. I will not expand at this time. This is the President's time, not mine.
I simply wish to bid farewell to President George Herbert Walker Bush and to thank him for his service to humanity. May he travel well.
