Babara Bush laid to rest; 1500 mourners pay emotional tributes


Former first lady Barbara Pierce Bush was laid to rest on Saturday at the Episcopal Church in Houstan that had been her spiritual home for more than 50 years. She was hailed as one of the most beloved political matriarchs in American history.

She was the wife of the 41st president and the mother of the 43rd. She was 92 at the time of her demise. Former President George H.W. Bush, 93, sat in a wheelchair at the front of the sanctuary, next to daughter Dorothy Bush Koch who at times put her arm against him. First lady Melania Trump was seated in the first row, beside former President Barack Obama, former first lady Michelle Obama and former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
