Bush was eulogized during a Capitol ceremony by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who called him "a humble servant who loved his fellow citizens", and a "principled leader who knew America not only guards our own future, but also safeguards democracy for the world".

Trump has ordered the federal government to close on Wednesday and both the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq will be closed in observance. Thousands paid their respects at a weekend candlelight vigil at a pond and others contributed to growing flower memorials at Bush statues at the library and a park in downtown Houston.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Wednesday has been designated as a national day of mourning, and that the White House flags have already been lowered to half staff to honor Bush. "So he was a terrific guy and he'll be missed". But he offered nothing but praise in the hours after the former president's death was announced.
