Houston — President Donald Trump is directing that American flags be flown at half-staff for 30 days to honor the memory of former President George H.W. Bush. In a proclamation signed Saturday hours after Bush died, Trump is also designating Wednesday as a national day of mourning. Trump encourages Americans to gather in places of worship “to pay homage” to Bush’s memory. Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, say Bush served his country with “modesty, integrity, and patriotism.”

Nebraska U.S. Senator Deb Fischer was among members of Nebraska’s Congressional delegation to comment on the Passing of President George H.W. Bush:

“Bruce and I are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of President George H.W. Bush. A member of the Greatest Generation, President Bush humbly served the country he loved. George H.W Bush was a patriot, a leader, and a decent man who had a noble spirit. Our prayers are with his family.”

Nebraska U.S. Senator Ben Sasse also commented on former President Bush’s Passing: 

“President George H.W. Bush served the American people with honor, diligence, and integrity  from his Naval service to the Oval Office. His family knows well the sacrifices required of public service and they have the gratitude of our entire country. Melissa and I now join millions of Americans in holding up all of his children in prayer.”
