George W. Bush was, indeed, a very lucky person. He had both parents alive after his presidency ended, which is historical! It was hard for him to bid farewell to such a great father after he lost his mother, Barbara Bush.

In the afternoon of December 3, a special Air Force jet was designated to land outside of Washington, D.C, at Joint Base Andrews. It honorably carried the dead body of the 41st U.S President, George Herbert Walker Bush. In a casket, he was readily transported to the U.S. Capitol Rotunda, after which he will be laid to rest at his dignitary funeral at Washington National Cathedral on Wednesday.
