USPS limiting service Wednesday to mourn George HW Bush

  • Sully former President George H.W. Bush’s service dog pays his respect to President Bush as he lie in state at the U.S. Capitol in Washington Tuesday Dec. 4 2018

An invitation-only funeral service is set for Wednesday at Washington National Cathedral.

Bush defeated Dole in the 1988 Republican presidential primary.

Yet one individual, who shall go unnamed, dared to criticize Sully on the internet because she did not believe the dog's six months of service to the former president was enough to merit our attention. He said that Bush embodied some of the nation's best values, "temperate" in thought, word and deed, "our nation's very best one-term president".

But Trump wrote members of Congress to hail Bush as a man who "led a life that exemplified what is truly great about America".

Former President George H.W. Bush will be buried in Texas after a funeral service at the church he attended for many years and a special memorial train that will carry his casket.

However, package mail delivery will be limited.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said "here lies a great man, a gentle soul".

Her friend Sue Miller said: "I actually think I underestimated him when he was in office".

Post Office, Stock Market Among Closures for Tomorrow's Holiday Honoring Former President Bush

Trump sat Wednesday with his wife, a trio of ex-presidents and their wives, several of them sharp critics of his presidency and one of them, Hillary Clinton, his 2016 Democratic foe.

The train's sixth auto, a converted baggage hauler called "Council Bluffs", has been fitted with transparent sides to allow mourners lining the tracks on Thursday views of Bush's flag draped coffin.

Trump has often aimed political taunts at the Bush family, long a symbol of the traditional, more moderate wing of the U.S. Republican party that often is at odds with Trump's populist supporters.

The New Yorker was a particularly bad offender, with writer Thomas Mallon describing Bush as a character who had an "irreducible niceness" to him, a man who waged a "just" war in Iraq and a president who "presided over a brief but glorious Pax Americana".

George W. and Laura Bush entered first, and the former president put his hand on the flag-draped casket holding the remains of his father.

There will be a 21-gun cannon salute after the Lord's Prayer is recited.

Waiting for his arrival inside, Trump shook hands with Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama, who greeted him by saying "Good morning". Bush, 94, died Friday.
