Whatever you think, in the end its about family and love, and knowing he was ready to go

i would prefer not to use the word 'family' in it's traditional sense!
Love & Loving connections, YES!

Bush was a Republican and I do not agree with his views or politics. Having said that, it is easy to respect a man who leaves a note for his political successor that reads:
When I walked into this office just now I felt the same sense of wonder and respect that I felt four years ago. I know you will feel that, too.

I wish you great happiness here. I never felt the loneliness some Presidents have described.

There will be very tough times, made even more difficult by criticism you may not think is fair. I’m not a very good one to give advice; but just don’t let the critics discourage you or push you off course.

You will be our President when you read this note. I wish you well. I wish your family well.

Your success now is our country’s success. I am rooting hard for you.

Good luck—


George H W Bush

Rest in Peace

He was a remarkable man. Yes there was issues we didn't agree with while he was president. But have to admit that he was a whole lot more of one than the person currently in office.
He was a truly loving man with his wife, Barbara, of 73 years. May they both be at peace together now, with their loving daughter, Robin, that they lost when she was three.
R I P George H W Bush.
Thanks David
