Barbara Bush laid to rest in College Station

Трамп не приехал на церемонию прощания с Барбарой Буш

Thousands of people waited their turn to say farewell and pay their respects to a woman fondly known as "everybody's grandmother".

"She believed literacy a fundamental civil and human right and gave the cause her all", said Meacham, who penned a biography of George H.W. Bush.

Among those planning to attend are former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, current first lady Melania Trump, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and former first lady Michelle Obama.

Barbara Bush cultivated strong relationships with White House staff when she lived there, as while family members and guests were treated to a reception Saturday morning before the service began, some former White House staffers and Secret Service members who were close to the family filed into the church.

Bush, just the next woman in USA background to own had a partner and son elected president, died Tuesday at the age of 92 at her home in Houston.

The selection of Jeb Bush as the final eulogist, and not George W. Bush, is notable in part because of the former Florida governor's antagonistic relationship with Trump during the 2016 campaign and after.

The Kardashians Throw Boozy Birthday Party For Kourtney
Kourtney could not just see her and her sisters' style in the DASH brand anymore and had figured a major update was required. In addition to Kim's misspelled card, Kourtney showed off her birthday card from younger sis Khloe Kardashian , 33.

President Trump did not attend the funeral "to avoid disruptions due to added security, and out of respect for the Bush Family and friends attending the service", the White House said.

"Her dedicated service to the American people was matched only by her compassion and love of family", Trump said in a statement after Bush's death.

Barbara Bush was born on June 8, 1925, in New York City and died at age 92 in her Texas home, surrounded by her family.

Some 1,500 guests are expected Saturday at a private funeral for Barbara Bush at the nation's largest Episcopal church.

Barbara Bush was remembered as the "first lady of the greatest generation" during a funeral Saturday attended by four former USA presidents and hundreds of other people who filled a Houston church with laughter as much as tears, with many recalling her quick wit and devotion to family.

She was to be buried at the George Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas.

P&G buys Merck health brands for $4.2B
Mumba- German drug manufacturer Merck on Thursday said it will sell its global consumer health business to Procter and Gamble (P&G) for Dollars 4.2 billion.

The former First Lady will be buried in a gated plot where her 3-year-old daughter, Robin, who died of leukemia in 1953, is buried.

Earlier in the week, members of the Bush family said the event was more than just a funeral - it was really a celebration of life for Barbara Bush. President George W. Bush didn't attend Lady Bird Johnson's funeral in 2007.

From there, it turned toward the back of the library, where the procession came to an end.

"The Bush School has also instilled in us a feeling of family and so feeling like we are the extended portion of the Bush Family even if we never get to meet them per se is a really big honor", explained Rebecca Skaff. Many were seen embracing in the church before the service.

The George Bush Presidential Library has set up a condolence book in the rotunda, alongside several displays of photos and mementos.
