George W. Bush gives Michelle Obama candy at father's funeral

William Barr

In the video, he shakes hands with former president Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama while the Clintons looked straight ahead.

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. She smiled at him after the exchange.

At McCain's funeral, Bush and Obama were seatmates and he appeared to hand her something during a eulogy.

During the State Funeral, George W. took the podium to give an emotional eulogy.

"When the history books are written, they will say that George H.W. Bush was a great president of the United States, a diplomat of unmatched skill, a commander-in-chief of formidable accomplishment, and a gentleman who executed the duties of his office with dignity and honor", Bush said.

Special Air Mission 41 lands at Houston's Ellington Field; George H.W. Bush will lie in repose overnight at St. Martin's Episcopal Church before traveling by train to College Station, where he will be laid to rest near his presidential library at Texas A&M University.

"We're going to miss you". "Your decency, sincerity and kind soul will stay with us forever". "The best father a son or daughter could have", said George W. Bush, holding back tears.
