Also, from those who understand the legacy he leaves behind.

The most poignant words came from his son.

“Through our tears, let us know the blessings of knowing and loving you. A great and noble man. The best father a son or daughter could have. And in our grief, let us smile knowing that dad is hugging Robin and holding mom’s hand again,” said Former President George W. Bush.
