"A former first lady of the United States of America and relentless proponent of family literacy, Barbara Pierce Bush passed away Tuesday, April 17, 2018, at the age of 92," reads a statement from the office of former President George H.W. Bush.


She was in declining health. RIP.


During her tenure as the nation's first lady, Mrs. Bush, the mother of six children, was a champion for global literacy and continued the work after she and her husband left the White House.



"Literacy fits in with so many other things," she once told The Chicago Tribune. "If more people could read, fewer people would have AIDS. There would be less homelessness. I'm absolutely convinced of that."

I'll save my tears for all the innocent victims of the two Bush administrations.

So I'm not being grim about this, but how long do you think the crappo will hit the fan (as in how long do you all thing Bush sr will be around)?

When I was in DC I met her a couple of times, she was very much the nations grandmother more then she was the first lady. A very nice and smart woman.

I knew this was gonna happen when we got those recent reports about her no longer receiving medical assistance.

Rest in peace Barbara Bush!

I'm no fan of the Bush boys and their horrible leadership but she is not to blame and deserves your compassion. That said, I don't think George is long for this world either.

I wondered how far the situation had gone when I heard the reports yesterday.

Hospice can mean many things and not always sudden death.

RIP?

Must be been a shortage of young blood around - or its being used on Clinton to keep her alive. May she and her bloodline be cursed to rot.

Yeah. I cant pretend. The Bushes' were pretending. Did all the pretending for everyone. None left.

Mrs Bush didn't do anything wrong to me, but the Bushes don't get peaceful well wishes of rest from me towards their family when they pass, as that would be tribute to a great fallen leader.

I wish this "human that died" the same that I wish other humans which I dont know that die.

Mrs. Bush wasn't elected as a leader. Didn't conduct war or administer policy.

Save it for the Mr(s). You'll get your chance.

After Mr. and Mrs. Bush being married for 73 years, I don't expect Mr. Bush to be around more than 6 months if he's in good health.

There is something about being with a person that long, and then to lose them that kind'a just breaks the heart and soul.

It's not something we see all that often, in this day and age, but 'dying of a broken heart' is a thing amongst those who have been together for half a century or longer.

Class act, boys. Booing and being crass about an old lady who has passed on.

Shows what type of vile lack of character you harbor behind an alias.

If you can't say something nice or respectful, don't say anything at all.

Even your Lord and Messiah Obama had polite things to say about Mrs. Bush.

RIP Mrs. Bush.

No politics involved for me. My prayers and wishes for peace to Big George, Li'l George and Jeb, and the girls. I saw Jenna's broadcast when the decision was made to change to Comfort Care. She was in tears. In retrospect, I believe she already knew the end was nigh.

May another take up her noble cause, and wield it as well as she.
