President George Herbert Walker Bush

…has shuffled off his mortal coil, and undoubtedly gone to Heaven.

This is my favorite portrait of him. Not only because it is so incredibly informal and human, but also because it looks eerily like my Dad. I’ve been lucky enough to meet the artist (Jeffrey Bass), and told him how much this picture affects me every single time I visit it in the National Museum of Naval Aviation.

George Bush was an American hero and national treasure. I hope Barbara doesn’t give him too much grief when he hits the Pearly Gates.

    I knew, when Barbara died, that he wouldn’t live long. Some people are married, and some are Wedded. My father died not long after my mother did. I’m not surprised to see the same here.

    May they both rest in peace.
