WASHINGTON — Memorial services Tuesday honored the late President George H.W. Bush. The former president will lie in state until services Wednesday at the Washington National Cathedral.
Bush died at his Houston home Friday at age 94. His casket arrived Monday afternoon from Houston. In remarks at the Capitol, House Speaker Paul Ryan praised the two-term congressman from Texas as a “great man” and a “gentle soul.”
Bush chose not to have a formal funeral procession through downtown Washington. Burial at his presidential library at Texas A&M University is set for Thursday.
