  • The flag-draped casket of former President George H.W. Bush was carried by a military honor guard

Bush then shook hands with former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, causing her to smile when he passed her what appeared to be a piece of candy.

The arrival in Houston came hours after Bush's legacy was honored at a state funeral in Washington D.C., during which he was eulogized by his son, former President George W. Bush, who labeled his father "a great and noble man".

The 43rd USA president had also given Michelle Obama a mint during the memorial service in September for Arizona Senator John McCain.

The casket carrying former President George H.W. Bush returned home to Texas Wednesday night.


Former President George H.W. Bush and granddaughter Barbara Bush arrive aboard Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base Md., May 11, 2008. The bipartisan moment went viral, and Obama later told NBC's "Today" show Bush slipped her a mint.

With President Donald Trump, a sharp NAFTA critic, seated in the front row at Bush's funeral, Mulroney said Wednesday the deal "created the largest and richest free trade area in the history of the world" and was "recently modernized and improved by new administrations".

"We're gonna miss you", the 43rd president said of his father. "He's a amusing man", she said.

On the eve of President George H.W. Bush being laid to rest, KPRC2 remembered our 41st President.
