Washington, DC

“We’re gonna miss you,” the 43rd president said of his father, the 41st president. “Your decency, sincerity and kind soul will stay with us forever.”

Bush and his family joined all living current and former presidents, as well as world leaders and other distinguished guests at the Washington National Cathedral.

He choked up in describing “the best father a son or daughter could have.”

Referencing his late mother, as well as a sister who died young, he said: “And in our grief, let us smile knowing that Dad is hugging Robin and holding Mom’s hand again.”
