His burial is Thursday.

Glasser, who described the late Senator John McCain's funeral as a "meeting of the resistance" was back again for Bush's sending off, this time to remind her followers how "extraordinary" a thing it is for a country to have two presidents from one family. The nation's 41st president served from 1989 to 1993, and eight years later watched his son George W. became the 43rd president. "He had an enormous capacity to give of himself".

Bob Dole was helped out of his wheelchair Tuesday to salute former President George H.W. Bush as he lay in state at the Capitol Rotunda. In the second row are Vice President Mike Pence, and his wife Karen Pence, former Vice President Dan Quayle, and his wife Marilyn Quayle and former Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife Lynn Cheney, former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden.

Among those who paid their respects to the 41st president, the current head of state, Donald Trump and the First Lady, Melania, visited the casket at the rotunda. Blair House is also known as the President's Guest House. The sweet exchange caught on camera of grieving former US President and former first lady at the funeral services is now going viral. The elder Bush never warmed to Trump and voted for Trump's 2016 challenger, Democrat Hillary Clinton.

A photo of the Labrador retriever resting by his owner's casket went viral, and the pooch will soon join the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center's Facility Dog Program.

Those close to the service dog say for now Sully appears lonely, loyal to the US leader for whom he had unwavering allegiance. "We spent a week there working with President Bush's team", Hibbard said.

The locomotive was painted to resemble Air Force One, but George H.W. Bush joked that if it had been around during his presidency, he may have preferred to ride the rails rather than take to the skies. His casket will be transported by motorcade Wednesday morning to the National Cathedral, where a state funeral will be held at 11 a.m. EST - that's 9:30 pm IST.

George P. Bush, the former president's grandson and the only member of the political dynasty still holding elected office, as Texas land commissioner, subsequently struck a more personal tone in his eulogy of the man he and the younger generations called "gampy".
