George H.W. Bush was to be laid to rest yesterday, concluding a four-day tribute to the 41st president that saw America briefly set aside its political divisions. After a state funeral Wednesday in Washington that was attended by the country’s five living presidents and foreign dignitaries, Bush’s flag-draped coffin was flown to Houston.

He will lie in repose at St Martin’s Episcopal Church, where the Bushes worshipped for decades, until he is buried. Bush will be interred at his presidential library in College Station next to his wife Barbara, who died in April, and their daughter Robin who died of leukemia at age three. At the memorial service President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania shared a front row pew in the National Cathedral with past presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter and their wives as an honor guard brought Bush’s casket into the prayer hall.
