Among those inside the cathedral included President Donald Trump, as well as all living former presidents.
His son and 43rd president, George W. Bush, gave a tearful eulogy of his father, peppered with jokes and personal reminiscences, reports NBC News. He said his father taught his children about the importance of public service and how to live a life with grace, humility and kindness.
“Dad is hugging Robin and holding mom’s hand again,” he said, referring to George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush’s daughter who died in 1953 from leukemia at the age of 3.
