On Tuesday night this week Barbara Bush, the beloved First Lady and wife of our 41st president, George H.W. Bush, and mother to our 43rd president, George W. Bush, died at the age of 92.
And what a wonderful woman she was. What a terrific American. She was admirable as a spouse, a mother, grandmother and of course—I think it’s safe to say— America’s favorite First Lady.
Whether Left or right, young or old, politico or non-politico—it seemed everyone loved Barbara Bush.
She was feisty. She was funny. She was a straight talker.
Barbara Bush will be greatly missed. But her life and her legacy will remain alive in the hearts and minds of Americans.
