Former First Lady Barbara Bush Has Died

From ABC News:

Former first lady Barbara Bush died Tuesday at her home in Houston, Texas. She was 92.

“A former first lady of the United States of America and relentless proponent of family literacy, Barbara Pierce Bush passed away Tuesday, April 17, 2018, at the age of 92,” reads a statement from the office of former President George H.W. Bush.

Bush passed away shortly after deciding to forgo further medical treatments for her failing health.

Having been hospitalized numerous times while battling congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, she decided Sunday that she wanted to be “surrounded by a family she adores,” according to an earlier statement released by Mr. Bush’s office.

    Rest in peace sweet lady. You went into that good night the way you lived your life- with courage and dignity.

    I fondly recall Barbara Bush speaking at some celebratory event the days before her husband was sworn into office in 1989. She was up on stage to introduce herself and said -and I'm paraphrasing:  Get a good look. White hair, fake pearls and no extravagant designer clothes. What you see is what you get!

    The next day, Nancy Reagan was interviewed and said Barbara's remarks were uncalled for.
