Barbara Bush dead at 92

Former First Lady Barbara Bush passed away on Tuesday after battling congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. She was 92.

On Sunday, George H. W. Bush’s office released a statement saying Barbara had decided to forgo further medical treatment, but she would focus on comfort care.

 

Via NY Daily News:

In a statement released shortly after Barbara Bush’s death, her son George eloquently recalled a mother “who kept us on our toes and kept us laughing until the end.”

“I’m a lucky man that Barbara Bush was my mother,” the former President said.

Our family will miss her dearly, and we thank you all for your prayers and good wishes.”

My condolences to the Bush family during this difficult time.
