  • WATCH LIVE: Barbara Bush's funeral

The wife of the 41st president and the mother of the 43rd, she died Tuesday at age 92.

Former presidents Barack Obama; George W. Bush, her son; Bill Clinton; and her husband George H.W. Bush all attended the funeral, but President Donald Trump did not; he watched the service from the southern White House, Mar-a-Lago, where he is spending the weekend. The service was televised.

Presidential historian Jon Meacham, who wrote a 2015 biography on the former president, recalled during his eulogy Barbara Bush's devotion to her husband of 73 years, noting he was the "only boy she ever kissed".

"Mr. Bush raised a family, endured the loss of a daughter to leukemia and kept everyone and everything together", said Meacham. In the microblog Twitter is the current President of the United States published a portrait of Barbara Bush.

Meacham told how Barbara Bush's hug of an HIV/AIDS patient "sent a powerful image, one of compassion, of love and of acceptance", and who she believed literacy was the "fundamental civil and human right". "At the same time, she fully participated in [her husband's] awesome career", Baker noted.

"I think Aggies and College Station and Bryan residents really put a value on members of our community, and even though the Bushes didn't live here, but they are considered members of the community and we are all going to come out in full force to support them and to honor them in this way", said Bowers. "I don't want to leave your dad, but I know I'll be in a attractive place".

On Saturday, her family remembered her as a God-fearing, kind and strict woman who devoted her life to others.

"Barbara, the tough but loving enforcer, was the secret sauce of this extraordinary family", Baker said.

"She spoke from her heart and never fearing what people would think and she was also such a great mother".

"My most favorite quality of her is her faith", said Bryan resident Barbara Schumacher. Reflecting the celebratory spirit of the ceremony, Meacham drew roaring laughter from the guests, relaying self-deprecating anecdotes about Bush's preference for another author, John Grisham, and her tendency to lovingly prod her children.

The scene would be repeated as eight of Bush's grandchildren carried her casket outside following the service.

"Strength and dignity are her clothing". And perhaps above all, humility.
