Americans to Honor President George H.W. Bush in Washington

Empty hall outside the Senate chamber of Capitol Hill the day after Congress was up all night to halt a shutdown overnight

The remains of the late U.S. President George H.W. Bush began a final journey on Monday, traveling from Texas back to America's capital city where he served four years in Congress, one at the helm of the Central Intelligence Agency, eight as vice president and four in the White House.

With hands on hearts, members of Bush's cabinet, lawmakers and Supreme Court justices honoured the 41st president as his flag-draped casket entered the Capitol Rotunda.

The official schedule for ceremonies honoring the late George H.W. Bush was released on Saturday. Postal Service said it will suspend regular mail delivery Wednesday out of respect for Bush.

He said Bush was the first president he ever voted for and was "the first president to teach me and many of us that in a democracy sometimes you fall short", and how you handle that, "is just as important as how you win". "He and the first lady will attend the funeral at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C".

Mr Bush, who served as the 41st United States president between 1989 and 1993, died late on Friday at the age of 94. Presidents are traditionally asked to eulogize presidents who have died - and in past state events like this, that has been the case - but the Bush family is unlike any other and has another president in the family who will fill that role.

The high court will be closed on Wednesday in recognition of the national day of mourning, rescheduling that day's oral arguments over Gamble v. The Facebook page for the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum also shared the image.

Bush's eldest son, former President George W. Bush, posted an Instagram photo of Sully lying in front of his old master's casket on Sunday.

Bush's death reduces membership in the ex-presidents' club to four: Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W Bush and Barack Obama. The detail, made up of agents who enjoyed a close relationship with the former President, will be with him until he is interred and in the second vehicle in the motorcades that will lead to all the ceremonies.
