Mrs. Bush is ninety-two and served as First Lady from 1989 – 1993. Former President George H.W. Bush is also in frail health, suffering from a disease similar to Parkinson’s that leaves him confined to a wheelchair. Both were hospitalized shortly before President Trump’s inauguration and unable to attend.
Prayers to the Bush family during this difficult time for their family.
