Fmr. VP Dan Quayle on Pres. George H.W. Bush:
“I have often told my children “If you want a role model in your life — look to President George Herbert Walker Bush. The world mourns the loss of a great American. But, it also celebrates a life well lived.” https://t.co/bKH4r5mTvJ pic.twitter.com/v9os4KgeJW— NBC News (@NBCNews) December 1, 2018
George H.W. Bush was an American hero who served our nation in WWII, as a Congressman, as UN Ambassador, as CIA Director, as Vice President, and as our 41st President.

Saddened to learn of the passing of America’s 41st Commander-in-Chief, President George H. W. Bush this evening. He and first Lady Barbara Bush epitomized grace and character. We lost them both in the same year. Our prayers go out to the Bush family. pic.twitter.com/NRorYAZkPF— AG Steve Marshall (@AGSteveMarshall) December 1, 2018
