Barbara Bush passed away yesterday.
One of the many articles, HERE from Fox.
Sadly, I don’t think President Bush will last very long now. Not after 73 years with her by his side.
I had the honor of meeting them both at NAS Moffett Field in 1989 or 1990, when they came through Base Ops on their way to the Beast. What I remember most is that BOTH of them took the time to speak to everyone they saw, Officer, Chief, or Enlisted. I remember the Secret Service being pissed, as they were trying to rush them through and on their way.
She was a class act, a truly gracious lady. I think the one thing that impressed me the most over the years was that she spoke her mind, and beat the literacy drum for many years through her Barbara Bush Foundation after she left the White House. She truly believed literacy was a way for people to improve their lives. May she rest in peace.
