Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

HOUSTON (AP) — George H.W. Bush is going to his final rest in Texas. The 41st president will be buried Thursday at his family plot on the presidential library grounds at Texas A&M University in College Station.

His final resting place is alongside wife Barbara Bush and daughter Robin, who died of leukemia at age 3. The country said a formal goodbye to Bush on Wednesday in a national funeral service in Washington.

The service at Washington National Cathedral included high praise and a hefty dose of humor about a man once described as a cross between Mister Rogers and John Wayne.

As three former presidents and President Donald Trump looked on, former President George W. Bush eulogized his father as “the brightest of a thousand points of light.”
