The family of late president George H. W. Bush has worked with the Department of Defense to coordinate several days of memorial services this week. Bush, who served as the 41st president of the United States, passed away on November 30, 2018 at the age of 94. The sad news was announced via a statement from his son, former president George W. Bush.
"Jeb, Neil, Marvin, Doro, and I are saddened to announce that after 94 remarkable years, our dear Dad has died," reads the message. "George H. W. Bush was a man of the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for. The entire Bush family is deeply grateful for 41's life and love, for the compassion of those who have cared and prayed for Dad, and for the condolences of our family and fellow citizens."
The services began in earnest on Monday morning, and will continue through late Thursday afternoon.
