Columnist Susan Del Percio far right meets President and Mrs. Bush

Mr Bush, who served as the 41st U.S. president between 1989 and 1993, died late on Friday at the age of 94.

The former governor of California said in his touching tribute that he enjoyed sledding with Bush at Camp David, while praising the former president for inspiring America to join "our fitness crusade" by hosting the Great American Workout with him on the White House lawn.

From there, a departure ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. on Wednesday before Bush's casket is transferred to the Washington National Cathedral at 11 a.m., where a funeral service will be held for family and friends.

Bush spokesman Jim McGrath posted a picture Sunday of...

He added: "A handsome day In Texas - 'ceiling and visibility unlimited, ' Mr. President".

The former president's body will arrive in Washington, D.C., today to lie in state in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda.

The casket will then be transported to the cathedral for Wednesday's funeral service - the fourth held there for a former president.

Trump has said he and wife Melania will attend.

Bitcoin Interest Shoots To Eight Month High
Percentage gains today are less than what they were yesterday , but market capitalization is now approaching US$140 billion. After an important recovery from a sharp fall in prices, public interest in Bitcoin rose dramatically to a 4-month high.

Trump was expected to meet with Schumer and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, respectively, on Tuesday to discuss the issue, and they have also delayed their talks until next week after Bush's death, CNBC quoted democratic aides as saying. Bush enrolled at Yale University after military service, becoming a scholar-athlete and captaining the baseball team to two College World Series before graduating Phi Beta Kappa after 2½ years.

To commemorate the first former president to die since Gerald Ford in 2006, officials have announced a detailed, four-day schedule of celebratory services and homages, organised with military precision by the Pentagon task force charged with protecting the USA capital.

A highly trained service dog, Sully will now go back into service to help other veterans and is going to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, former President George W. Bush wrote in an Instagram post. He served one term as president, from 1989 to 1993, after a long career in government service.

Bush will be buried next to his wife and former first lady Barbara Bush, who died in April, and his daughter Pauline Robinson "Robin" Bush, who died in 1953 at just 3 years old.

Baker instead emphasized his friend's foreign policy successes: navigating the end of the Cold War, negotiating two nuclear arms reduction treaties, and summoning a global coalition to eject Iraqi troops from Kuwait in the first Gulf War. "He knew that combat meant the death of people, people on your side and people on the other side".

Mr Bush, who died over the weekend aged 94, had a form of Parkinson's disease.

Bush served as US vice president from 1981 to 1989 under President Ronald Reagan.

Last week, things took a decided turn for the worse, Baker said on ABC.
