George H.W. Bush's final words 02:17

Former President George H.W. Bush spoke his final words in a phone call with his son, former President George W. Bush, a source familiar with Bush's final hours told CNN.

In their conversation on speakerphone, the son told the senior George Bush that he had been a "wonderful father."
His father's reply -- and final words -- were: "I love you, too."

The elder Bush's final words were first reported by The New York Times.

In his last hours, Bush was asked whether he wanted to go to the hospital, according to a source familiar. He had been hospitalized multiple times this year since his wife Barbara Bush's death on April 17, and he had been dealing with a number of health issues over the years, including having a form of Parkinson's disease.
The former president answered no.
Instead, Bush said that he was ready to go and be with Barbara, his wife of 73 years, and their late daughter Robin, who died of leukemia as a child.
Bush, 94, died late Friday at his home in Houston surrounded by his family, including his son Neil Bush and wife Maria, his best friend and former Secretary of State James Baker, and his grandson Pierce Bush.
Bush will lie in state at the US Capitol before a memorial service at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC. A second memorial service will follow at St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston.

Bush will be laid to rest at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas, alongside his wife, and Robin.
Specific times and more details will be announced at a later time, according to Bush's spokesman Jim McGrath.

What I ( Kent ) think

Kent: as someone who is deeply involved in politics whenever someone of high-level Dies who has given their life to serving in public office it's always hard for me regardless of what side of the political aisle they align themselves with I personally have worked on the campaign trail and I know it's the hardest thing you can ever do to give your life to public service you often faced with people who disagree with you politically and take it out against you personally you learn to brush that stuff off your shoulder and remember you're still serving them at times this can be very hard George HW Bush was not on the same side of the political world but he is someone I greatly respect also someone I understand and someone who loved his country for those two things we are bonded as fellow Americans God bless him his family and everyone who's having trouble morning my deepest regards go out to the family his son George W bush who again I might disagree with politically what is also someone who loves his country and therefore he is a fellow American and will be a great leader as this family goes through a very hard time God bless you bush God bless the Bush family
