George Bush Sneaks Michelle Obama Candy at Father's Funeral

Sully former President George H.W. Bush's service dog pays his respect to Bush as he lie in state at the U.S. Capitol in Washington Tuesday Dec. 4 2018

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell opened a session of the Senate on Monday heralding the "daring" former naval aviator, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency and president who won the Gulf War against the forces of Iraq's President Saddam Hussein.

With Mr Bush's casket atop the 1865 Lincoln Catafalque - a platform used to raise caskets - dignitaries also came to honour the president, whose efforts for his country extended three quarters of a century from World War II through his final years in advocacy.

Dole, 95, has had a number of health issues in recent years and struggled to stand up from his wheelchair to salute Bush, his one-time political rival. Once steadied, Mr Dole saluted. He was the Republican presidential nominee in 1996.

Bush, who died Friday at age 94, was president from 1989 to 1993.

Friends and family will celebrate his life during a memorial service at the National Cathedral in Washington.

The organization paired Sully with Bush to support the former president in his daily activities - from answering the phone to picking up items.

"President Bush and I...we are forever seatmates because of protocol, that's how we sit at all the official functions, so he is my partner in crime at every major thing where all the formers gather", the former first lady had said in an appearance on NBC's Today Show a month after McCain's funeral.

Trump, the day before, spent 20 minutes visiting Bush family members, who were staying at Blair House, across the street from the White House. The pair quickly bonded, with the former president even buying socks in honor of his beloved companion.

Democrat Bill Clinton coasted to victory, ending Bush's presidency.

The New York Stock Exchange will also be closed on Wednesday.
