Late Saturday, December 1,  one of our former presidents passed away. Many of the people were saddened by this news. In remembrance to our late President, President Donald Trump made December 5, the National Day of Remembrance for President Bush. Roads are closed, jobs are closed, and people are visiting the casket of President George Bush.

In the four days leading from his death to his state funeral, there are numerous tributes being held in honor of the former president.

At least 300 people are supposed to be in attendance at the funeral, including Peyton Manning, the Carters, and the Obamas. Today state leaders are visiting the National Cathedral to mourn and pay their respects to the family of President George H. W. Bush. The funeral was by invitation only, so you had to be close friends, family, or you worked for the president during his presidency. ABC 13 released a full list of those expected to be in attendance. The list has children of late past presidents, past presidents, world leaders,  military leaders from all branches, and all the choirs from all branches of the military are supposed to sing a song.

On Monday Michelle Obama canceled her book tour to go to the funeral. President George H. W. Bush will always be remembered and respected for his time in office. Many people looked up to him and thanked him for all he did. He will always be in our thoughts.
