On Wednesday, former President George W. Bush gave a moving eulogy for his father, the late former President George H. W. Bush, at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.

“To his very last days, dad’s life was instructive,” Bush said. “As he aged, he 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 promise of what lies ahead.”

“He showed me what it means to be a president who serves with integrity, leads with courage, and acts with love in his heart for the citizens of our country. When the history books are written, they will say that George H.W. Bush was a great president of the United States.”

“The best father a son or daughter could have,” he said in closing.
