The former first lady died on Tuesday at age 92.

"My dear mother has passed on at age 92. We all know that".

"First lady Barbara Bush set the bar high for service and dedicated herself to bettering the lives of millions of Americans", Governor Brown said. "Amongst her greatest achievements was recognising the importance of literacy as a fundamental family value that requires nurturing and protection", Mr Trump said. Around the rotunda, suspended by almost invisible wires, were oversized photos from the various phases of Barbara Bush's long life.

She and George H.W. Bush made presidential history in another way, too.

"Columba and I join every member of the Bush family in offering our honest gratitude for the outpouring of love and support for my Mom in recent days, and throughout her remarkable life".

"Barbara Bush was an inspiration to a generation of Americans", said Raimondo.

Then First Lady Barbara Bush was not a fan of The Simpsons when the Fox cartoon went on the air - but it turns out a letter from Marge helped to change her mind.

Turkish president calls snap elections for June
His extended powers were expected to take effect until after the presidential election. Bahceli and Erdogan have been allied since a coup attempt in Turkey in 2016.

After World War II, the Bushes moved to the Texas oil patch to seek their fortune and raise a family. "She knew which states could be won (in presidential elections) and which ones couldn't be". She served her family with love and compassion.

Kenneth Jay Lane, the designer who created Bush's inauguration necklace (and who died last year), told the Chicago Tribune in 1989 that the first lady's conspicuous product placement had quadrupled sales of his famous fakes.

Upon her return home, Barbara Bush received an outpouring of support. She showed us what an honest, vibrant, full life looks like. I was so honored the day she called me "Dearie". "The grace, honor and decency of Barbara Bush and her husband displayed are entirely absent in President Trump and his clan of grifters". I'll always treasure my summer visits to Kennebunkport. Clinton often joked he spent so much time with the Bushes that he'd become like a member of the family.

Barbara Bush's sweetness and charm earned her the title of "everybody's grandmother".

Becker added that the former president, 93, was "stoic and strong" and was comforted by his large, supportive family.

A public celebration of Barbara Bush's life and legacy will be held Thursday night in front of Houston City Hall. Bush, may we always keep in mind to be kind to one another and to put the care of others first.

Both Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are expected to be present when Bush is laid to rest.
