Mission complete George HW Bush's spokesperson tweeted as he shared this
Two days after Bush's death at age 94, family spokesman Jim McGrath posted a touching photograph Monday of the yellow Labrador retriever lying down in front of Bush's casket, with the accompanying phrase "Mission Complete" and the hashtag #Remembering41.
The casket carrying the body of George HW Bush is set to arrive in Washington on Monday afternoon, aboard the U.S. military plane commonly known as Air Force One.
Ceremonies at the presidential library will include a missing man formation flyover.
The two-year-old Sully has been at Bush's side since June, just weeks after the death of the president's wife Barbara, to whom he was married for 73 years. His casket will be transported by motorcade Wednesday morning to the National Cathedral, where a state funeral will be held at 11 a.m. EST.
4141 George Bush Locomotive, which was unveiled October 18, 2005, was dedicated to honor the nation's 41st president.
Bush, who was president from 1989 to 1993, will lie in state beneath the soaring U.S. Capitol rotunda for a ceremony and public visitation from Monday through Wednesday.
The flag-draped casket of former President George H.W. Bush is carried by a joint services military honor guard to Special Air Mission 41 at Ellington Field during a departure ceremony Monday, Dec. 3, 2018, in Houston. President Donald Trump, who ordered federal offices closed on Wednesday for a national day of mourning, is to attend with first lady Melania Trump. "And the contrast between George H.W. Bush and the current president could not be more stark". The chairman of the National Governor's Association at the time was then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton, who later defeated Bush in the 1992 presidential election. Former presidents or prominent politicians customarily lie in state.
During this service Bush's grandson George P. Bush will speak as will Bush's best friend, James Baker, Bush's chief of staff and Secretary of State and Secretary of the Treasury. The two former presidents led fundraising campaigns in the aftermath of various disasters. The pair worked together to raise tens of millions of dollars for victims of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and Hurricane Katrina, which swamped New Orleans and the Gulf Coast in 2005.
Baker said the elder Bush's last words were, "I love you, too", spoken to the younger President Bush, the country's 43rd president.
