Rest in Peace
Rest In Peace, President George H.W. Bush. President Bush committed his life to service, bravely fighting in World War II, serving in Congress, leading the @cia, serving as Ambassador to the United Nations, and being Vice-President all before leading our nation. He’ll be missed.

President George H.W. Bush was the real deal. We fought but he was gracious enough to accept my apology. Through his daughter Dorothy, my friends Ron Kaufman and Mary Matalin, I got to know him. Rest in Peace #GeorgeHWBush #Hero#WW2
