Union Pacific to participate in Bush funeral procession

Union Pacific to participate in Bush funeral procession”

The House has canceled all votes for the week and the Senate has postponed votes until after the Wednesday funeral of former President George H.W. Bush.

Former Senator Bob Dole stands up and salutes the casket of the late former President George H.W. Bush as he lies in state at the U.S. Capitol, December 4, 2018 in Washington, DC.

A similar outpouring is anticipated in Washington this week during the state funeral for Bush, who died late on Friday at his home in Houston.

Bush's remains will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol Rotunda from Monday night until Wednesday.

Family and former staffers attended a brief departure ceremony Monday at a Texas Air National Guard base outside Houston, watching as a contingent of eight soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines took his flag-draped casket to the jet that typically serves as Air Force One - for a last trip to Washington.

He said Bush's "quality of life had deteriorated a lot" in recent months, but that near the end he was able to talk by phone with his adult children, including former President George W. Bush. His final resting place will be alongside Barbara Bush, his wife of 73 years who died in April at the age of 92, and Robin Bush, the daughter they lost to leukemia in 1953 at age three. An invitation-only funeral service is set for Wednesday at Washington National Cathedral.

President and Mrs. Bush were frequent guests at Kyle Field along with many other@TAMU athletic venues.

In a recent essay, Clinton declared of Bush: "I just loved him".

Dukakis, 85, blames himself for his election loss as the Democratic nominee, saying he didn't respond aggressively to a Bush campaign ad featuring a convicted murderer named Willie Horton who raped a woman and stabbed her partner while out of prison on a MA furlough program. But he offered nothing but praise in the hours after the former president's death was announced.

Trump has ordered the federal government to close on Wednesday and both the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq will be closed in observance. The casket will return to Texas for a funeral Thursday afternoon at his presidential library in College Station.
