A first lady who earned esteem — Barbara Bush

In rewinding the life and times of beloved former first lady Barbara Bush, one might best view them as a study in contrasts.

George Martin, founder of conference, reflected on his brief time with the late Mrs. Bush and the legacy she leaves behind.

"To quote her, you would need a crane to hoist her out of Kennebunkport".

The celebration will include remarks by founding pastor of Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church Rev. William Lawson, Samuel Karff, Rabbi Emeritus, Congregation Beth Israel, and Joseph Fiorenza, Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. He fondly recalled that she was wearing a green and red holiday dress. She later said she wore pearls to hide the wrinkles in her neck, according to The Associated Press. And she said, "Because I drank and smoked when I was pregnant with him"'. And when she campaigned with President Bush.

There's no denying that Barbara enjoyed a long, full life.

The former president presented the George W. Bush Medal for Distinguished Leadership to Bono on Thursday at the center.

She told the anchors former President George H.W. Bush is "heartbroken" and said, "He misses her, of course". Bill and Hillary Clinton noted, for instance, the personal friendship with the Bushes that grew up after the often-nasty 1992 presidential race. Barbara stayed by her daughter's side the entire time. Part of this had to be influenced by her faith. Barbara was with her at the time. Most importantly Mrs. Bush made others feel special around her.

"It meant a lot to me then, but it means a lot more to me now", he said.

"We were old enough to realize that it was important, but I don't think we were quite old enough to realize the gravity of how important that was", he said.
