COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX)- A student-led candlelight vigil was held Saturday morning, shortly after the passing of President George H.W. Bush.

Students from The Bush School of Government and Public Service lit candles and passed out flyers with the quote: "Let future generations understand the burden and the blessings of freedoms. Let them say, we stood where duty required us to stand."

Candles were placed around the statue of the former president outside the library and museum.

"He was such a wonderful man and this school was founded on his style of public service and selfless service. He himself said public service is a noble calling. We are here to try and live that out in our time here at the school and we want to honor him tonight," said William Moore, a student at the Bush School.

Due the passing of President George H.W. Bush, all scheduled events have been canceled at the Bush Library and Museum. That includes Holidays in the Rotunda, which was scheduled for Saturday, December 1.

Funeral information will be posted online at www.georgehwbush.com.
