The second funeral service for George H.W.
The service – at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Houston – comes a day after Bush’s enormous legacy was honored by a procession of dignitaries and family members at Wednesday's state funeral at the Washington National Cathedral.
After the Houston funeral, Bush’s casket will travel 70 miles by train on Union Pacific Locomotive 4141 to his final resting place in College Station on the Texas A&M University campus.
During Thursday’s Texas funeral, longtime Bush friend James Baker, the former secretary of state, will deliver a eulogy, as will grandson George P. Bush, the Texas land commissioner.
On Wednesday, Bush’s son, George W. Bush, also an ex-president, delivered an emotional and personal eulogy for "a great and noble man."
