Eulogy celebrates George H.W. Bush's love for his wife

2018-12-05 | Eulogy celebrates George H.W. Bush's love for his wife

Presidential historian Jon Meacham read aloud letters sent between former President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara Bush at the state funeral of the 41st president.
Meacham just gave his tribute to former President George H.W. Bush, telling the assembled family, friends and dignitaries of Bush's life code:
"Tell the truth. Don't blame people. Be strong. Do your best. Try hard. Forgive. Stay the course."
Meacham called it "the most American of creeds."
Bush, Meacham said, had a lasting impact.
He "made our lives and the lives of nations freer, better, warmer and nobler. That was his mission. That was his heart beat. And if we listen closely enough, we can hear that heartbeat even now, for it's the heartbeat of a lion, a lion who not only led us, but who loved us."
