"Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family of President Bush on his passing. President Bush spent most of his life serving the public and had a long career in both domestic politics and foreign affairs. He was also a devoted husband and dedicated father, grandfather and great-grandfather.

President Bush was intimately involved in the Presidential Library and local community from attending exhibit openings and forums to frequently being seen in the museum and surrounding grounds.
