Lauren bush lauren barbara bush

High-ranking officials from the elder Bush's administration, including former Vice President Dan Quayle and Dick Cheney, who served as defense secretary before later becoming George W. Bush's vice president, will also be among the mourners. Bush said he felt priviliged that he had a "front row" seat to the incredible love story that his parents shared. In response, Barbara Bush surprisingly spoke out against Trump, ripping into him for how he treated women.

First lady Melania Trump attended the service on Saturday.

Baker emphasized Barbara Bush's kindness, compassion and ability to make others feel welcomed. NBC News correspondent and Bush's granddaughter Jenna Bush Hager held back tears before presidential historian Jon Meacham began his tribute. He also said the wife of the 41st president and the mother of the 43rd was "candid and comforting, steadfast and straightforward, honest and loving".

Meacham recalled her work bringing awareness to AIDS patients and in promoting literacy. "It does make me sad, because she's such an incredible example, and I don't know how many more people there are to be that kind of example".

Mrs Bush was the matriarch of a political dynasty that included two U.S. presidents - her husband George HW Bush and her son George W Bush.

However, it's not uncommon for sitting presidents to skip the funerals of former first ladies.

The George Bush Presidential Library and Museum will not be open to the public.

First lady Melania Trump attended today's service "on behalf of the first family", White House deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters said in a statement.

On Saturday morning ex-president Bush hosted a reception for the visiting dignitaries before the private service. Barbara Bush and her husband regularly worshipped at the church, which is the largest Episcopal church in the country.

Bush lie in repose at St. Martin's Episcopal Church from noon until midnight. Dr. Martin Murphy and his wife Ann Murphy, friends of the Bushes, paid their respects to Mrs. Bush and her husband, George H.W. Bush, long worshipped.

"I just wanted to be there to honor her", said Barbara McMahon, 78, a retired librarian who lives in Houston and who wore her pearl earrings to St. Martin's on Friday.

More than 1,500 friends and family members attended the private service at the church, which was the Bushes' place of worship for many years. The White House said this week he wanted to avoid disrupting the service with added security.

After the funeral, a motorcade will leave Houston en route to the Bush Library in College Station.

First lady Melania Trump is in attendance, along with former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George H.W. Bush.

- Family, friends and the nation are saying goodbye to Barbara Bush.
