Former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama paid tribute to former First Lady Barbara Bush.
President Obama took to his Twitter account to share a statement on behalf of him and First Lady Michelle Obama.
“Barbara Bush was the rock of a family dedicated to public service, and our thoughts and prayers are with both Presidents Bush and the entire Bush family tonight. We’ll always be grateful to Mrs. Bush for the generosity she showed to us throughout our time in the White House, but we’re even more grateful for the way she lived her life – as a testament to the fact that public service is an important and noble calling; as an example of the humility and decency that reflects the very best of the American spirit. She’ll be remembered for passing those American values on to her children, her grandchildren, her great-grandchildren — and to the countless citizens whom she and George inspired to become “points of light” in service to others.”
