WASHINGTON | Bush celebrated with praise and humor at cathedral farewell
WASHINGTON— George H.W. Bush was celebrated with high praise and loving humor Wednesday as the nation bade farewell to the man who was America’s 41st president and the last to fight for the U.S. in wartime. Three former presidents looked on at Washington National Cathedral as a fourth — George W. Bush — eulogized his dad.
“To us,” the son said of the father, “his was the brightest of a thousand points of light.”
