Jack Nicklaus Fred Couples Jim Nantz

President Trump has declared Wednesday, Dec. 5, a national day of mourning to honor former President George H.W. Bush ahead of his state funeral in Washington, D.C.

With Trump due to attend the funeral of President Bush, the nation can expect the Bush family to show "kindness and class" to Trump when he attends the service, according to a former Bush 43 White House official.

Yet one individual, who shall go unnamed, dared to criticize Sully on the internet because she did not believe the dog's six months of service to the former president was enough to merit our attention.

America's 41st president died Friday at his home in Houston.

Sully is understandably upset by the death of his longtime friend, but he is glad to have served the 41st president for almost six months. His passing prompted an outpouring of praise from Republicans and Democrats for his kind manner and dedication to public service.

The offices of Speaker of the House and Senate Majority Leader had to sign off on the use of the rig, Ake said.

Nasdaq also observed a moment of silence, displayed a message honoring Bush on the Nasdaq Tower in Times Square and announced a Wednesday closure.

Outside the Capitol, a long line of people waiting to pay their respects to the 41st President began to form early in the evening.

Christy Smith paused over the weekend to pay her respects to Bush at a bronze statue of him at a Houston park.

Another person told the Post that Bush "wouldn't want anyone there to feel uncomfortable, including the incumbent president'".

Washington's political elite paid tribute to former US President George H.W. Bush as his body lay in state in the Capitol on Monday, evoking a bygone era of bipartisan civility in American politics.

It is a tradition for the stock market to close for funerals of former presidents. The elder Bush enjoyed wearing a colorful pair of socks for different occasions.

A picture of the yellow Labrador retriever lying down in front of Bush's flag-draped casket was posted to Twitter on Sunday night by a spokesman, along with the caption, "Mission complete".

Bush was elected USA president in 1988 as the successor to Ronald Reagan. His wartime duty was spent in the Pacific flying a three-man Avenger torpedo bomber. Bush enrolled at Yale University after military service, becoming a scholar-athlete and captaining the baseball team to two College World Series before graduating Phi Beta Kappa after just 2½ years.
