Flags are being flown at half-staff around the state of Wisconsin following the death of former President George H.W. Bush. The 41st President of the United State passed away Friday, about eight months after the death of his wife Barbara Bush. Governor Scott Walker said the flags will be flown at half-staff through December 30th.
The 43rd President, George W. Bush, said the entire family is deeply grateful for 41’s life and love. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said his father was the greatest human being he will ever know. Granddaughter Jenna Bush Hager said she is missing this giant of a man who gave her everything. She said she will miss him desperately but is happy he and her grandmother are back together.
A week long celebration of the life of former President George H.W. Bush begins this evening. The 41st president, who died Friday at age 94, will lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda in Washington. A funeral at the Washington National Cathedral is scheduled Wednesday morning, followed by another funeral in Houston on Thursday. Former President Bush will be buried on the grounds of the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum at Texas A&M University in College Station.
