Barbara Pierce Bush, 92, died April 17, 2018. The wife of President George H. W. Bush (41) and President George W. Bush (43), she was only the second women in history to hold the distinction of being a former First Lady and First mother. The first had been Abigail Adams in 1800.
I visited the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas in December 2016. You can see my article here: http://shortweeks-longweekends.com/three-days-texas-presidential-libraries/
On this day of the celebration of Mrs. Bush’s life, I wanted to share a few photographs from my library visit. She was a phenomenal woman.
Her Secret Service code name was “Tranquility”
73 years devoted years together. She recently said, “I’m not going to expire today. Tell that man that I adore him.”
The grave site is located behind the Presidential Library surrounded by trees. The approach to the site follows a small creek. It is a peaceful place for reflection.
The Bush’s daughter Robin was interred to share the space with her parents. The site will be available to Library visitors beginning tomorrow.
