How very sad it is that Barbara Bush, wife of former-President George H. W. Bush, has passed away of heart failure. She was 92 years old and had been married to President Bush for 72 years.
The same love that sustained her marriage enabled her to give generously to those in need. She worked for literacy and for cancer research. More to the point, she had such a kindness about her that she drew others to herself. At the same time, she could be outspoken when the need arose.
A children's hospital in Maine and a park in Texas were named in her honor.
Rest in peace, Mrs. Bush. You will be deeply missed.
