Former President George H.W. Bush and granddaughter Barbara Bush arrive aboard Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base Md., May 11, 2008.

"We got to go in this little college there on the campus and meet him, and it was very awesome", said Nancy Buffington.

President George W. Bush sits at his desk in the Oval Office for the first time on Inaugural Day, in this January 20, 2001 file photo, as his father, former President George H.W. Bush looks on.

"He taught us public service was noble and necessary", his son and the 43rd president, George W. Bush, told the invited guests at Washington National Cathedral. Blair House is also known as the President's Guest House. He then pushed the item into Michelle Obama's hand, before going around the front of the pew to say hello to the Clintons and Carters.

Another close friend of the elder Bush, former U.S. Senator Alan Simpson, recalled that the 41st president was "a class act from birth to death. one of nature's noble men".

France's United Nations envoy said there was "widely-shared concern" among the 15 council members related to the launch. He stressed that the missile test had been aimed at ensuring the country's defence in relation to national security.

The nation is bidding a final farewell to America's 41st president.

Rather than a 21-gun salute, the Navy's planned tribute to the late President George H.W. Bush could be called a 21-top-gun salute.

Many are speculating that the item was candy, as Bush was seen handing Obama a sweet treat during John McCain's funeral earlier this year.

Mourners gathered at the airport to pay their respects to Bush as a black hearse waited for the flag-draped casket on the tarmac.
