Former President George H.W. Bush will be laid to rest wearing a pair of his trademark colorful socks.

"The 41st president died late Friday at his Houston home at age 94".

CNN reported that Trump would not be giving a eulogy, and instead would meet privately Tuesday with the Bush family at Blair House, the president's guest house that is located across the street from the White House.

Good boy, Sully. Good boy.

Millie was famously referenced during the 1992 presidential campaign, when Bush said, of Bill Clinton and Al Gore, "My dog Millie knows more about foreign affairs than these two bozos".

- Specific tasks necessary for his match with the late president were fine-tuned and refined at the VetDog's Smithtown, New York campus. Despite the fact that Trump's rise to power included lambasting past presidents, including both Bushes, the President has responded to Bush's death with repeated laudatory comments.

As of Monday morning, all living Presidents are expected to attend Bush's funeral on Wednesday at the Washington National Cathedral.

The 41st president will lie in state at the United States Capitol this week.

Members of the family, including children and grandchildren, will be taking part in each service. Jeb Bush, the president's younger son and a 2016 contender for the Republican presidential nomination, also weighed in.

An American flag and one with the presidential seal flew nearby. He is named after former airline pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who safely landed a plane on the Hudson River in 2009. He will be honored during several private and public events in Houston and Washington before he is buried in Texas next to his wife, Barbara, and their young daughter Robin, who died in 1953.
