Residents and representatives of the Highland Lakes paused this week to reflect on and remember the life of the late former President George Herbert Walker Bush, who died Nov. 30 at the age of 94.

A national day of mourning was observed Wednesday, Dec. 5, as the 41st president was honored during a funeral service at the National Cathedral Washington, D.C., with President Donald Trump and all four surviving former presidents in attendance.

A second funeral service was held Thursday, Dec. 6, at St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston before his coffin was transported by train to College Station, where he was to be buried on the grounds of his presidential library at Texas A&M, next to his wife Barbara, who died at age 92 in April, and their daughter, Robin, who died of leukemia at age 3 in 1953.
