Former U-S President remembered in Washington

Former PM Brian Mulroney one of four people to eulogize the 41st President Wednesday

The late George H. W. Bush honoured with high praise and loving humour.

Three former presidents looked on at Washington National Cathedral and a fourth, George W. Bush, was one of four to eulogize Bush senior.

The national funeral service capped three days of remembrance in Washington before Bush’s remains return to Texas for burial Thursday.

Current President Donald Trump ordered the federal government closed Wednesday for a national day of mourning. Flags on public buildings are flying at half-staff for 30 days.
