    Definitely a classy and sensible person.

    One of just two women who married a future President and gave birth to a future President.

    Her observations about some people were also always spot on.

    She was a true matriarch.  Need more women like her in politics!
    God bless.

    I've heard that she was adored by her Secret Service security detail, as she was very kind to them. She seemed like someone it would be easy to like.

    That's remarkable @Photo Egg.  It's always good to hear when the "behind the scenes" info matches the in-the-spotlight persona.

    Truly one of the coolest things in my life so far. I got to do this twice. I have a great photo with Mrs. Bush from the second visit. The SS agents were also very nice and friendly when they were not in action mode. I remember at least 2 of them commenting on how much of an honor it was watching over Mrs. Bush when we were talking about their past assignments.
    Very overwhelming and special experience.
    With my current involvement in this forum I'm not sure I would pass the Secret Service screening again.lol
    Thank you,
