George H.W. Bush's service dog, Sully, is honored: 'Mission complete'

The former secretary of state had visited Bush three times that day, the first on Friday morning. He looked up at Baker, eyes wide. He's going to surprise us again. "He was the father or one of the fathers of German reunification and we will never forget that", she said.

Roberto Molina, whose family owns Molina's Cantina, one of Bush's favourite Tex-Mex restaurants in Houston, said he remembers Bush's kindness to his staff whenever he would stop by to eat. For those who want to pay their respects, the Bush family requested that donations be made to the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University to "help ensure that President Bush's legacy of public service with integrity is perpetuated".

Mr Bush has received glowing tributes from around the world, with many hailing him as the country's greatest one-term president.

He will lie in state in the Capitol for public visitation through Wednesday. This will be followed by a departure ceremony scheduled for 10 a.m. Various political leaders, including former President Barack Obama and current President Donald Trump, have sent out public statements commemorating Bush's legacy, with Obama praising the "legacy of service" Bush left behind as the 41st president of the United States.

After services in Washington, Bush will be returned to Houston to lie in repose at St. Martin's Episcopal Church before burial Thursday at his family plot on the library grounds.

The casket will then be transported to the cathedral for Wednesday's funeral service - the fourth held there for a former president. Bush told KBTX the train was a unique honor.

Former President George H.W. Bush died Friday in his Houston home at the age of 94. Picked up by Ronald Reagan to be his vice president in 1980, Bush eventually succeeded Reagan in 1988, easily defeating his Democratic opponent Michael Dukakis in a landslide victory. In the end, the focus wasn't on politics or achievements or honors, it was on love.

"George H.W. Bush was a man of the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for".

"We have lost an American hero, George H.W. Bush", he said, "who fought in the killing fields of the Second World War, who knew to distinguish between good and evil and how to build strong regional coalitions against cruel tyrants".

Bush's passing puts him back in the Washington spotlight after more than two decades living the relatively low-key life of a former president.

Baker said Bush's last words, in a phone conversation with son George, were: "I love you, too".
