Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson Releases Statement after Passing of President George H. W. Bush
Dallas, TX – Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson released the following statement on the passing of former President George Herbert Walker Bush:
“President George Herbert Walker Bush was one of a kind. His grace and leadership guided our country through the Cold War and brought the conflict to a peaceful end. Few leaders have ever given as much of their life to this country as our 41st president did in his 94 years. I consider myself fortunate to have known the Bush family for many years and know that President Bush instilled in all of his children and grandchildren that a life of noble service to our nation is a life lived to its fullest.
“My condolences are with his family, friends, and all those with whom he served in the United States Navy, the United States Congress, the United Nations, the Central Intelligence Agency and the White House.
“I pray that as he joins his beloved Barbara, may he rest in peace.”
