George HW Bush Laid to Rest

Friday, December 7th, 2018

The body of former US President George HW Bush has been brought to the burial site at his presidential library in Texas after a funeral at a Houston church where he was remembered by family members who knew him best as “Gampy.”

Bush’s casket travelled by train from Houston to College Station, Texas, and then carried to the gravesite behind his library by a military honour guard, in a ceremony overseen by his son and former President George W Bush.

Bush, the 41st US president, died last week in Texas at 94. His remains were flown to Texas on Wednesday following a state funeral at the Washington National Cathedral attended by President Donald Trump, the four living former presidents and foreign leaders.
