I always liked Barbara. I didn't know she was in failing health until the announcement earlier today that she was switching to palliative care. Has anyone said what her health problem was?

I agree. I never wish anyone that didnt do me harm any ill will. I think we should be mindful of who the people are that we give national recognition to or even social accolades to and why.
She wasnt a bad person but to praise and revere her does a service to her Husband and her son that did what they did to propel her into fame. They are not deserving of those honors.
This is not a sacred church with rules of reverence and no one is actually speaking to the Bushes to insult them or even insulting Barbara Bush. I havent seen that, though its been said by opportunist liars.
Well wishes are fine for her on a human level if you are just sending out good vibes. I did that myself. I hope that is all this is. If not its not very healthy nationally to revere the mothers and wives of presidents, even as former first ladies, simply because they were related to national leaders.
We dont have kings here in the US and dangerously damaging political leaders shrouded in controversy should not get fanfare when their mothers and wives die. Sorry but its inconsiderate to the people that this pseudo Dynasty hurt on a scale that we weigh war crimes on and historical damages to humanity on. It is like that. So very sorry, but it is.
That said, I will say this now.
RIP Barbara Bush. Godspeed.
Barbara Bush was a mean-spirited vindictive drunk, she's ascending into Hell right now
