Poor President Bush having to sit there and shake these strangers hands.

This is so amazing! But yet typical of the family just such good down to earth people. One reason I love this family so much! What a legacy.

What a Secret Service nightmare, but shows how the classy Bush family behaves. What an honor to his beloved Barbara!

Beautiful gesture of the president, says a lot of the kind of people they are , 🙏for God’s comfort

A true testimony of love and devotion. What a role model for families everywhere; we should all pray for a love and marriage like that.

That is so sweet and thoughtful

Oak Ridge Boys who are close personal friends of the Bush Family will be attending.....

The Bush's have CLASS. God Bless them.

God bless the Bush family. Keep them safe as well as law-enforcement, Secret Service, FBI and everyone who attends former first lady Barbara Bush’s funeral. RIP Mrs. Bush!!!

What a kind man! Putting his own grieving aside to wear a smile and greet those who are giving their condolences.

They were always there for each other. I think he still wants to be there for her. May you be at peace Mrs Bush and may the family find peace and comfort during this time.

We care so much for you President Bush, please take care and condolences for Barbara. Everyone loved her light and inspiration!

May Mrs Bush rest in Peace! God bless you Mr Bush. I unfortunately cannot be there today but please accept my family's prayers

I hope President Bush finds comfort in the well wishes. Theirs is a love we can only hope for.

Thoughts and Prayers to the family and the President (wow)

My heart is breaking .May god wrap his arms around this family .Love and prayers to the Bush family 🙏🙏🙏

WISH i COULD BE THERE ... GOD BLESS HIM AND ALL OF HIS FAMILY FROM NORTH MISSISSIPPI..

So wonderful of him to be there. Another example of kindness and exemplary family!!!

I have always loved the Bush Family!!! This is amazing and beautiful gesture.

This touches my heart! God bless president Bush and his family!

My condolences to you Mr. President Bush so sorry from Texas

Lord give him strength during this tough time

Love that man, and love Barbara.

Lifting the family up in prayers

Why is Texas ATM with Mohd Ameen and Armann Bhati ? Who r they?

I hate that the weather Saturday is supposed to be so dreadful. Everyone stay safe.

Sure hope no trains decide to make an appearance.

Where did this map come from? Wm D Finch road is named Green Prairie Road on map....

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let the perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace.

Sincerest condolences & prayers for the Bush family & friends during this time. Thank you Mrs. Bush for always serving and representing this nation with class, grace & honor.

We were going to visit the library this weekend while we are in town for Muster but we will wait for another visit. We will definitely take the chance to watch her procession instead.

Is there a link for the ENTIRE motorcade route out of Houston?

Alexis Guillory! This will be an awesome motorcade, she is loved by so many Texans!❤️💙❤️

Peter carter

Does anyone know how this will affect southbound hwy 6? Not the service roads. Headed to a wedding in Hempstead and need to plan accordingly since this will be happening at the time we would be leaving.

Is there any information about media coverage of the visitation or the motorcade?

Brandon Warner.... wish I could join you this weekend!

Wendy Stout Bankston Paige Bartine, check out the map of motorcade. Try to see it Paige! Info on road closures too

Haley Miller- this would be memorable for K

Any sort of timeline?

Stacy Gingrich

May you Rest In Peace

If only we would all strive to have 1/10th of the positive impact on those around her that she did. She will be missed!

Texas Independence Day, Aggie Muster, Here.

How appropriate for her interment to occur on Aggie Muster Day and on the A & M grounds!

Lady of class and honor! Matriarch of the Bush family, Aggies, all Texans, all Americans, and the world!!! She was the picture of motherhood, wife, and role model too all woman! We will miss you.... Rest In Peace honorable lady Barbara Bush. We have all lost a great mentor.

Mrs. Bush was a lovely lady, and Heaven is now a little bit sweeter.

Thanks First Lady for what you did for a friend and me during the dedication of the library at College Station. We were in BDU's and you called us to the front. I believe it was in July 1995. Will always remember how nice you were. When the agent told us you wanted us to report up front, we thought we were in trouble, but you thanked us for our service. RIP beautiful lady.

What an appropriate day to honor such a wonderful person. “Here”

Fitting that she will be buried on Aggie Muster day. I hope her name will be called at roll call and 15,000 students answer “HERE!”

On Muster- How incredibly fitting, I’m so glad we can give her the honor she deserves. She will be so missed. Here.

Softly calls the Muster.

For those curious as to what Muster is (Donna Sue Cameron) see www.tamu.edu/traditions/remembrance/muster/?hootPostID=ee030783ddfa1120eeaaaaede90188e1 It is one of our most sacred traditions. For Mrs Bush...here.

What a thing to be buried on Muster

What a great lady she will surely be missed she believed in educating our young is just so many great things I can say about her I just don't have the time rest in peace she will be missed

For those of you following this sad event, the grave site is in a small private grove on campus, about 1 km from where I work.

Will make this particular Muster even more poignant. God Bless this special woman, God Bless Texas Aggies. Here.

The United States loses a great woman, a great person and an example of life, but the universe gains a bigger star and the sky more an angel.My deepest and most sincere sentinentos to family and friends

R.I.P. First Lady, your President will be there shortly. His heart will be broken and will not stand to be apart.

Classy, consitent, ever supporting. Dearly Lady you will be missed! Our prayers with President Bush and family. May she rest in peace.

Rest In Peace to a beautiful lady with class and grace. Her smile lit up a room! Dance with the angels!🙏

Thanks for this info. She was such a calm, bright and wise woman. Her internment is on my mother’s birthday - fitting as my mom always thought highly of her.

Alysia Valerio Lindsay will y'all drive to College Station for the burial? We won't, but we were there a year ago and saw the cemetary.

We visited the George Bush Library two years ago and it was so interesting, a real insight into their lives, loved seeing her wedding dress. R.I.P.❤️

She was an awesome woman, classy lady, and American Angel!! Our condolences to the Bush family and world! Her legacy will live on....

Read an article that said, “Those pearls she always wore were fake. She didn’t care....... she liked them.”😄

My mother, Dee Ramirez and I saw her speak at A&M. My mom had a blast and is such a great memory I have with my mom who has passed. She would be sad to know Mrs. Bush has passed too.
