My Statement on the Life of Former First Lady Barbara Bush


“Former First Lady Barbara Bush will be remembered a strong and courageous woman who served America with compassion. Whether as First Lady or the leader of an extraordinary family, Barbara always led by example and taught fellow women many lessons through her work ethic and sterling sense of humor. Her work in support of literacy was rivaled only by her life-long devotion to family and her husband, George H.W. Bush. My life, along with millions of others, has been enriched and blessed by having known her. My prayers are with President Bush and Barbara’s entire family.”
