Late President George H.W. Bush lies in state in Washington

George H.W. Bush and Michael Dukakis shook hands before a September 1988 debate in Winston-Salem N.C

A family spokesman also said, "Mission complete".

"George Bush was born on third base and he thought he hit a triple", Ann Richards, the governor of Bush's adopted Texas, hooted at the Democratic National Convention in 1988, the year that the patrician New Englander, senator's son and former Yale first baseman defeated the hapless Mike Dukakis to become the 41st American president. President Donald Trump is among the dignitaries who plan to attend.

"The elegance & precision of the last two days have been remarkable!"

Bush will lie in state in the Rotunda of the US Capitol from Monday evening Wednesday morning, under the watchful gaze of an around-the-clock honors guard. They waited in line nonetheless.

Since it was built, the 4141 George Bush locomotive has delivered shipments across all 23 states served by Union Pacific, the company said. "I wasn't the biggest fan of his presidency, but all in all he was a good honest guy doing a really hard job as best he could".

"It's an honor to participate in things like this, to show our respect for presidents of the past", said Navy Chief Ronald Ratliff, 44, who works at the Capitol. The number is a reference to Bush's place in the roster of America's presidents.

"I met him on numerous occasions". "He seemed like a honest and decent man and you couldn't argue with his qualifications".

Shortly before leaving the service, he married his 19-year-old sweetheart, Barbara Pierce, and forged the longest presidential marriage in U.S. history.

Soon after he reached the height of his political popularity following the liberation of Kuwait, with public approval ratings that are the envy of today's politicians, the USA economy began to sour and voters began to believe that Bush, never a great communicator - something even he acknowledged - was out of touch with ordinary people.

House Speaker Paul Ryan alluded to that political setback in his Capitol remarks and said Bush handled defeat with grace.

Liberals chortled. But four years later, the scion's own son-George Walker Bush, or simply W. -defeated that same woman's bid for re-election. Trump himself has criticized the elder Bush on the campaign trail.

Hundreds of others joined the Deanses on Monday in lines that meandered around the Capitol complex to be among the first wave of public visitors to honor the 41st president, who was remembered during an earlier ceremony for his military career, his leadership and his influence at the highest levels of government. Then, Bush will be eulogized at a funeral at Washington National Cathedral.

Bush will be taken to his home of Houston, where he'll lie in repose at St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston from 7:45 p.m. ET Wednesday until 7 a.m. ET Thursday. Bush died late Friday at age 94.
