Distinguish gas, including Are Presidents and first ladies government officials, foreign dignitaries and Friends, Jack Neo, Marvin Daryl, and I and our families. Thank you all for being here. I once heard it set of man that the idea is to Die Young as late as possible at age. 85, a favorite pastime of George HW Bush was firing up his boat. The Fidelity and Oppa chapter 3 300 horsepower engines to fly joyfolie fly across the Atlantic with the Secret Service boats, straining to keep up at age 90. George HW Bush parachuted out of an aircraft and landed on the grounds of Saint Ann’s by the sea in Kennebunkport Maine, the church where his mom was married and where he worshipped often, I just say he chose the location just in case the Chute didn’t open in His 90s – he took great Delight when is closest pal Jay Bakker smuggled a bottle of Grey Goose vodka into his hospital room. Parently a pair well with the state Baker had delivered from Morton’s to his last days. Dad’S life was instructing as he ages. She taught us how to grow with dignity, humor and kindness, and when the good Lord finally called how to meet him with courage and with the joy of the prom. What lies ahead. One reason dad who had to die young, as he almost did it twice when he was a teenager, a staph infection nearly took his life. Few years later, he was alone in the going to life, raft, praying that his Rescuers would find him before the enemy did. God answer those prayers. It turned out. He had other plans for George HW Bush as far as I think, those brushes with death mating Cherish The Gift of Life and he vowed to live everyday to the fullest. There was always busy a man in constant motion, but never too busy to share his love of life with those around him. He taught us to love the outdoors. He loves watching dogs, flusha cubby. He loved Landing the aleut striper and was confined to a wheelchair. He seems happier sitting in his favorite perch on the back porch at Walkers Point contemplating the Majesty of the Atlantic Verizon. She saw we’re bright and hopeful. He was a genuinely optimistic man and that optimism guided is children and made each of us believe that anything was possible. He continued broaden his horizons with daring decisions was a patriot. After High School you put College on hold and became a Navy fighter pilot as World War II broke out like many of his generation. He never talked about his service until his time as a public figure forced his hand. We learned of the attack on chichi-jima the mission completed the shootdown. We learned of the death of his crewmates thought about throughout his entire life, and we learned to the rescue and then another audacious decision. He moved his young family from the Comforts of the East Coast to Odessa, Texas and Mom, adjusted to their surroundings, quickly he’s a taller man. After all, he was kind and neighborly to the women with whom he mom – and I shared a bathroom in our small group. Even after you learn their profession, ladies of the night, there could relate to people from all walks of life. He was an empathetic man, he valued doctor over pedigree and he look for the good in each person and they usually found it. There taught us at Public Services Noble and necessary that one serve with integrity and hold true to the important values like Faith and family. He strongly believed that it was important to give back to the community and Country in which one lived here. A is the serving others in Rich The Giver Soul. Do us his with the brightest of a thousand points of light and victory Share Credit when he lost his show the Blaine he accepted. The failure is a part of living, a full life, but taught us never to be defined by failure. He showed us how setbacks can strengthen. None of this disappointments could compare with one of life’s greatest tragedies. The loss of a young child Gemini were too young to remember the pain and Agony he and mom felt when our three-year-old sister died. We only learned later that Dad a man of quiet Faith prayed for her daily. He was sustained by the love of the almighty and the real and enduring love of her mom.. I always believed that one day he would hug his precious Robin again. He loved to laugh, especially at himself he could tease and needle, but never out of malice. He placed great value on a good joke, so I chose Simpson to speak. An email you had a circle of friends with whom he shared to receive the latest jokes is grading system for the quality of the joke was classic George Bush, the rare, 7th and 8th were considered huge winners, mugshot moth color George Bush knew how to be a True and loyal friend he nurtured and honored. Many is many friendships with a generous in giving so they’re. Just thousand handwritten notes, encouraging or sympathizing are thanking his friends and acquaintances. He had an enormous capacity to give of himself. Many a person would tell you that dad became a mentor and a father during their life. He listened any consoled. He was their friend, I think of dawn Rhodes, Taylor, Blanton, Jim Nantz, Arnold Schwarzenegger and perhaps the unlikeliest call the man who defeated him. Bill Clinton, my siblings, and I refer to the guys in this group as brothers from other mothers. He taught us that the day was not meant to be wasted. He play golf at a legendary Pace. I was wondering why I insisted on speed. Golf is a good golfer, but here’s my conclusion. He played fast as he can move on to the next event to the end, the rest of the day to expand his enormous energy to live at all. He was born with just two settings. Bottle. Then sleep taught us what it means to be a wonderful father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was firm in his principles and supportive as we began to seek our own ways he encouraged and comforted, but steered we tested his patience. I know I did, but he always responded with a great gift of unconditional love. Last Friday, when I was taught administer live, I called him. The guy answered the phone said he I think he can hear you, but he hadn’t said anything for most of the day. I said I love you and you been father and the last words he would ever say on Earth. Were I love you to see what’s close to perfect, but not totally perfect, his short-game lousy. You want exactly Fred Astaire on the Dancefloor. The man couldn’t stomach vegetables, especially broccoli, and by the way he passed, these genetic defects along.. Finally, everyday of a 73 years of marriage, dad taught us all what it means to be a great husband, the sweetheart. Order he laughed and cried with her. He was dedicated to her totally in his old age. Dad enjoyed watching police show reruns the volume on hi, all the while holding Mom’s hand after mom died. Dad was strong, but all he really wanted to do was hold Mom’s hand. Again, you showed me what it means to be a president who served with Integrity leads with courage and acts would love in his heart for the citizens of our country. When the history books are written, they will say that George HW Bush was a great president of the United States, a diplomat of unmask skill, a commander and chief of formidable accomplishment in a gentleman who executed the duties of his office with dignity and Connor. In his inaugural address, the 41st president of the United States said this. We cannot hope only to leave our children a bigger car, a bigger bank account. We must hope to give them a sense of it means to be a loyal friend, a loving parent, a citizen who leaves his home his neighborhood and town better than he found it. What do we want? The men and women who work with us to save when we are no longer there that we’re more driven to succeed than anyone around us or that we stopped to ask if a sick child had gotten better and stayed a moment there to trade. A word of friendship will then we’re going to remember you for exactly that and much more and we’re going to miss you, your decency, sincerity and console will stay with us forever. So, through our tears, let us know the blessings of knowing and loving you a grade. A nobleman, the best father, a son or daughter, could have had and then our grief, but a smile, knowing that again
