The late President George H.W. Bush loved his country, and tennis

The late President George H.W. Bush loved his country, and tennis”

Former President George H.W. Bush will be honored during several public and private events in Houston and Washington before his burial Thursday in Texas.

The Instagram account for Bush's service dog, Sully, posted a touching photo of the dog in front of Bush's casket with the caption "Mission complete" following the 41st president's death at 94 on Friday.

The president's body will be interred at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum. "Now we've got a serial liar and womanizer as president, a draft dodger surrounded by a bunch of corrupt crocodiles".

The locomotive has been painted the colors of the Air Force One plane used during Bush's presidency and bears the number "4141" in honor of the 41st president.

When a woman suggested Bush was out of touch with regular people, he checked his watch and then fumbled through an answer.

"Nobody likes to be rebuked", said Barry Bennett, a former campaign advisor, predicting Trump's reaction to the Bush tributes.

"The 41st President will be carried to his final rest wearing socks that pay tribute to his lifetime of service, starting as an 18 year-old naval aviator in war". His casket will be transported by motorcade Wednesday morning to the National Cathedral, where a state funeral will be held at 11 a.m. EST.

The reference was to the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush named after the president.

Former Presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama will also attend the funeral. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump are scheduled to attend.

Former Sen. Alan Simpson, R-Wyo., will deliver a eulogy for Bush.

Once Mr. Bush's body leaves D.C., there will be a memorial at St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston, where his late wife, Barbara, was memorialized earlier this year.
