WATCH: George W. Bush Breaks Down During Emotional Eulogy Of Dad, George H.W. Bush
It was an emotional day yesterday as America watched the funeral of George H.W. Bush, and one of the most memorable moments was the eulogy made by his son, former president George W. Bush.
In the emotional speech, George spoke of his dad, telling the crowd of former presidents and known figures: “He was a genuinely optimistic man and that optimism guided his children and made each of us believe anything was possible.”
He later recalled with laughter, “In his 90s, he took great delight when his closest pal James A. Baker smuggled a bottle of Grey Goose vodka into his hospital room. Apparently it paired well with the steak Baker had delivered from Mortons… To his very last days, Dad’s life was instructive. As he aged, he taught us how to grow with dignity humor and kindness — and when the good Lord finally called, how to meet Him with courage and with the joy of the promise of what lies ahead.”
