The nation honors George H.W. Bush

Jeb Bush comforts his father, former President George H.W. Bush, during a funeral service for his mother, former first lady Barbara Bush in April. 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. Bush died at home in Houston on Friday at age 94. As people remembered the 41st president of the United States, author Stephen King couldn't help but see the stark comparison between Bush 41 and current President Donald Trump.

"The 41st President will be carried to his final rest wearing socks that pay tribute to his lifetime of service, starting as an 18 year-old naval aviator in war". Today, a ceremony will be held for him at the the Capitol in Washington D.C., where he will lie in state in the rotunda, before being taken back to his final resting place in Texas on Thursday. An invitation-only funeral service is set for Wednesday at Washington National Cathedral.

Dana Carvey, who impersonated Bush on the sketch comedy show from 1986 through 1993, had his work seemingly cut out for him, considering his subject didn't have the larger-than-life or scandalous attributions that would make lampooning easy.

The Supreme Court is delaying arguments by a day while a national day of mourning is held for former President George H.W. Bush.
