President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump are mourning the passing of former President George H.W. Bush.
"The entire Bush family is deeply grateful for 41's life and love, for the compassion of those who have cared and prayed for Dad, and for the condolences of our friends and fellow citizens". A sixth child, daughter Robin, died of leukemia before her fourth birthday.
Family spokesman Jim McGrath says Bush died shortly after 10 p.m. Friday, about eight months after the death of his wife, Barbara Bush.
