    Former First Lady Barbara Bush Passes Away at 92

    Former First Lady Barbara Bush Passes Away at 92

    She will be deeply missed.

    Sadly, Barbara Pierce Bush passed away this evening.

    The official statement from the Bush’s spokesman:

    Sunday, the family announced that Mrs. Bush would no longer receive treatment for multiple ailments but would instead focus on comfort in her final days.

    Reports from Monday said the former first lady was alert and chatting it up with family over a glass of bourbon.

    Bush was as classy a broad (and she was truly a broad) as ever existed.

    In what seems like at least 10 lifetimes ago, I issued immigration documents to international students and scholars at Texas A&M University, which is also home to George H.W. Bush’s Presidential Library.

    Somewhere during my tenure, I took graduate courses in international affairs at the Bush School where the Bush’s had an apartment. Secret Service presence on campus always gave away their visits.

    The Bushs were very much part of the school. Bush 41 gave class lectures and on more than one occasion, I ran into Mrs. Bush who was out in the courtyard with their dogs. She was always incredibly kind, genuine, and approachable.

    Later in life, I moved to Rye, New York, where Mrs. Bush was from. It’s a lovely little village in Westchester.

    Mr. and Mrs. Bush were married an incredible 73 years. Their care and love for one another was always evident and admirable.

    “You have given me joy that few men know,” George Bush wrote to her, according to a collection of letters published in 1999.

    “I have climbed perhaps the highest mountain in the world, but even that cannot hold a candle to being Barbara’s husband,” he also said.

    The Bushs prayed aloud together nightly. By all accounts, Mrs. Bush wasn’t fearful of moving on from this world:

    …she said she didn’t fear death for herself or “my precious George.”

    “I know there is a great God, and I’m not worried,” she said.

    Truly a life well-lived.

    She will be deeply missed.

    1:20 Then Job arose, … 1:21 And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.

    Many, though they mourn her passing, are grateful for the blessing given through the life and love of Barbara Bush. “The Lord gave …”

    Second Timothy 6 For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand. 7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 From now on the crown of righteousness is laid up for me, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but to all who crave His appearing…

    First Lady Bush to you a Crown of Righteousness. Godspeed!
