“I offer my condolences to the Bush family and to the nation in the loss of First Lady and First Mother Barbara Bush. Her graciousness, humor, and love of family were evident to everyone and that is shown in the outpouring of tributes to her family from all who knew her. She had such dignity and such a caring nature. We could all learn much from the way she lived her life.”
