Former first lady Barbara Bush once said, "Nobody likes, you know, the ugly parts of politics".

Bush's love of her husband, whom she met in high school, remained immense during the couple's 73 years of marriage. "Her presence and character were engraved into America's identity".

"Now I, a grandma, and Barbara Bush, wear beads of pearl/How lovely on the President's best girl", Cossitt rhymed in "My Pearls". Bush also said that his mom kept them laughing until the end, even though it was tough for her. He thanked those who offered prayers for her soul.

When Barbara and George's daughter Robin was only three, in 1953, she was diagnosed with leukemia.

"Her life has been an outstanding example of what it means to be a devoted wife, a devoted mother and a very involved citizen - a very, very faithful citizen of Houston".

Speaking to the Dallas News ahead of being presented with the medal, Bono said: 'In terms of our bases, our relationship didn't look well on either of us.

"I went with my best friends so we spent the day together", Prater said. "Trump without Stone is akin to George W. Bush without Karl Rove or Barack Obama without David Axelrod".

At her last conference, Barbara Bush sat on a panel along side First Ladies Rosalyn Carter and Betty Ford. But the Bushes refused to accept that there was no hope, and they stayed by her side for seven months of treatment. "And if they quote you, make damn sure they heard you".

McBride said while the Bush family may not have liked the rhetoric of the campaign, "they respect and stand up and salute the office of the president of the United States".
