Post Office, Stock Market Among Closures for Tomorrow's Holiday Honoring Former President Bush
Former US president George W. Bush shared a light moment with former First Lady Michelle Obama at the funeral for his father George H.W. Bush on Wednesday, appearing to slip her a piece of candy before the service began. Dole, who is 95, was helped from his wheelchair to stand and salute his fellow World War II veteran.
George HW Bush was remembered just feet away from what he called "Democracy's front porch", the west-facing steps of the Capitol where he was sworn in as president.
During Dole's salute to Bush, the attending crowd remained silent.
"Jeb, Neil, Marvin, Doro, and I are saddened to announce that after 94 remarkable years, our dear Dad has died", the message read.
Those insults have been set aside, but the list of funeral service speakers marked the first time since Lyndon Johnson's death in 1973 that a sitting president was not tapped to eulogize a late president.
President Bush will lie in repose in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda until Wednesday morning, when his body will be moved to National Cathedral for a state funeral.

Union Pacific originally commissioned the Bush locomotive for the opening of an exhibit at his presidential library titled "Trains: Tracks of the Iron Horse". The sweet exchange caught on camera of grieving former US President and former first lady at the funeral services is now going viral.
Although Mr Bush's funeral services are suffused with the pomp afforded to U.S. presidents, by his choice they will not include a formal funeral procession through downtown Washington. He was a familiar presence in Washington: a congressman in the late 1960s, then Central Intelligence Agency director, envoy to China and Republican Party chairman.
