The End. Godspeed, Sir


George Herbert Walker Bush always referred to his wife  Barbara as “the Enforcer.” So it comes as no surprise that, at her insistence,  God called him home – she was determined that under no circumstances was George to spend his 94th Christmas without her.

So RIP George Herbert Walker Bush, airman, war hero, patriot, family man, oilman, public servant, statesman and spook. And once, very very young…

h01.jpgBarbara and George met at a Christmas dance when she was 16 and he, a naval aviator in training, was just 17. Thus began a 76 year love affair that lasted till Barbara’s death at 92 last April.

So while you can be six for a very long time indeed, you can’t be six forever.


“And when all the dust is settled and all the crowds are gone, the things that matter are faith, family, and friends. We have been inordinately blessed, and we know that.” – George Herbert Walker Bush

Godspeed, sir.
