Thank you so much for being a wonderful First Lady. You always showed so much warmth and caring I felt like you were part of my family. You and George were wonderful parents and grandparents and the world would be a better place if people used you two as an example. Thank you too for being along side the President and giving him moral support while he was leading our country. I miss seeing your smiling face but you have truly earned your right to Rest In Peace.

To the late FORMER 41ST UNITED STATES OF AMERICA FIRST LADY BARBARA BUSH, Family, Friends, and Fellow Americans GOD will wipe away all tears from your eyes and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away. Rest assured that the Lord, our Heavenly Father sends us his Comforter in times of sorrow and grief. He is with you now as always. The Bush Family, Friends, and Americans I know you will miss her powerful spiritual kindness, her warm smile, she was a powerful gentle spirit. I know she will be missed by her family, friends, and Americans for all the good works she did in the service of GOD, Reading Education, and USA Country. The FORMER 41ST UNITED STATES OF AMERICA FIRST LADY BARBARA BUSH deserves to hear our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST say to her WELL DONE MY GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT, WELL DONE! There is no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal! So, the BUSH entire family, friends, and American's look to JESUS CHRIST and live! GOD has spoken so let the Faithful say AMEM! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

Barbara Bush was always self assured, honest and down to earth, yet elegant and dignified at all times in the public eye. we are so sad you are gone, what will George HWBush do without you? we fear he will want to join you soon. look out for him. look out for all of us because your example could be the gold standard for all of us out there trying to live good honest and caring lives.

to Mr President and family, my heartfelt regrets go to you on your loss. it is always painful, no matter how long a life was lived. we all feel loss at one time or another in our lives when loved ones pass. so our tears are with you and our sympathies are with you. until the next life, hugs to you all, Lori Whitburn

TO THE FAMILY OF MRS. BARBARA BUSH;


MY HEARTFELT CONDOLENCES TO THE FAMILY FOR YOUR LOSS. MRS BUSH WAS A WIFE, MOTHER AND NO DOUBT A GOOD FRIEND TO ALL WHO KNEW HER. IT SEEMS SO UNFAIR THAT DEATH SHOULD HAVE THE POWER TO TAKE AWAY SOMEONE YOU LOVE. AND WHEN IT HAPPENS, THE THOUGHT OF NEVER AGAIN BEING ABLE TO TALK TO, LAUGH WITH OR SIMPLY HOLD THEIR HAND CAN BE MOST DIFFICULT TO BEAR.

MAY YOU ALWAYS KEEP TREASURED MEMORIES OF MRS. BUSH IN YOUR HEART. AND MAY YOU ALSO FIND COMFORT IN KNOWING THAT THOSE WHO HAVE PASSED ON IN DEATH GOD KEEPS IN HIS MEMORY BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL PRECIOUS IN HIS EYES.
(PSALMS 116:15)

RESPECTIVELY YOURS,

EDO, ILLINOIS

Mrs. Bush will always remain the 'best' First Lady and I am still grieving on her passing. I have read her book 'A Memoir Barbara Bush' so many times since it was first published, absolutely the best. Our world has lost a most gracious, beautiful woman. At least I can re-read her book again and again.

My condolences to all of her family. FYI, I also like her husband and young George was okay in my 'book' as well.

A beautiful woman, a beautiful family. Mrs. Bush was and will always be an 'icon.'

You are the epitome of a devoted, strong and noble matriarch. I have a tremendous amount of respect and admiration of how you lived your life. You truly knew the role of a woman was not just about beauty, as you knew beauty fades but rather; living a life of true purpose. I love you Mrs Bush and may our heavenly father say to you welcome my loyal and faithful servant.
