As the 72-year-old Bush arrived at the National Cathedral for the state funeral for his father - the 41st U.S. president - he shook hands with President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania.

The reception for First Lady Melania was lukewarm, but the chilly lack of a greeting for Donald Trump was palpable, reports USA Today.

Bush appeared to hand former first lady Michelle Obama something at his father's funeral, recreating a moment from Sen.

According to the spokesperson who worked for George H.W. Bush post-presidency, while making plans for the services, the president asked, "Do you think anyone will come?"

"So we're together all the time, and I love him to death".

People have waited hours in line to pay their respects to George H.W. Bush as he lies in state.

"Through our tears, let us know the blessings of knowing and loving you, a great and noble man".

"Remembering George H.W. Bush: Houston's President" aired Wednesday night on KPRC2. The best father a son or daughter could have.

President from 1989 to 1993, George H.W. passed away at his home in Houston last Friday, just seven months after the passing of his wife Barbara Bush, in April of this year.

Several politicians and world leaders gathered at National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday to pay their respects to the 41st President of the United States, who died on November 30.
