Melania Trump, ex-presidents will attend Barbara Bush's funeral

"We all know that". "You can see it is a really special area of the park for contemplation, rest, for reflection", she said.

"It's true, sometimes we laugh through our tears, but that shared laughter has been one of our strongest bonds".

Audience members, who gave the Bushes several standing ovations during the hourlong event, were delighted with the "down-to-earth" couple, as one Lowell resident described them. "Our family will miss her dearly, and we thank you all for your prayers and good wishes".

Darroch said the wife of former President George H.W. Bush will be "remembered for her care and compassion for her fellow Americans, for her unfailing efforts to promote literacy, and for her devotion to her family".

Bush says his mother was joyful and still teasing him the day before she died.

"When I worked in the Bush White House, I had the pleasure of getting to know Barbara".

Now Houstonians and people across the country are wearing their pearls to honor the late first lady, some with the hashtag #PearlsforBarbara. But the former first lady - only the second woman to be both wife and mother to US presidents - could also be a tough-talking, no-holds-barred campaigner. The other was Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams and mother of John Quincy Adams. Amongst her greatest achievements was recognizing the importance of literacy as a fundamental family value that requires nurturing and protection.

The cause of death is unreleased, but the former first lady's health has been declining for some time.

She continued to 60 Minutes: "And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, 'That's a lovely little girl". The email continued, "Melania is my rock and foundation, and I wouldn't be the man I am today without her by my side".

Will Ferrell Hospitalized After Serious Car Accident
Billy Eichner , who hosted the voter registration event, tweeted Friday he was not in the vehicle with Ferrell, who he said is OK. Ferrell was reportedly returning from a amusing or Die event that he did with comedian Billy Eichner in Oceanside, California .

The White House West Wing communications office did not respond when asked whether President Donald Trump would join his wife in attending. I'm a lucky man that Barbara Bush was my mother. She had grit and grace, brains and beauty. She showed us what an honest, vibrant, full life looks like.

Here are some of the condolences and reactions to her passing. She urged graduates to choose their own path - and not to let others define it for them, evoking the spirit of tolerance to counter those who protested that she was a poor choice for a speaker.

I'm missing my mother-in-law and role model tonight. Don't underestimate the power of her message or the example she set by doing something that was so controversial at the time.

In 1992, when her husband sought re-election, Bush distanced herself from the Republican Party's anti-gay rhetoric at a time when Pat Buchanan stoked fears over gays at the Republican National Convention as attendees chanted, "Family Rights Forever/Gay Rights Never".

A public celebration of Barbara Bush's life and legacy will be held Thursday night in front of Houston City Hall.

Hager added: "She was always very gracious to us".

While first lady, from January 1989 to January 1993, Bush generally refused to talk publicly about contentious issues, particularly when her opinion was said to differ from her husband's.
