(中央社)老布希11月30日逝世,享壽94歲。國葬儀式昨天上午於華府國家大教堂舉行,包括現任總統川普夫婦,以及前總統歐巴馬、柯林頓和卡特都偕同夫人出席悼念。美國前總統小布希昨天在笑淚交織中送別父親前總統老布希,表示人們會懷念父親的正直、真誠與善良。

小布希發表悼文時,在前段中不忘展現傳承自父親的自嘲幽默感,提到老布希不擅舞蹈,也很挑食、尤其不愛花椰菜,父親的這些缺點都遺傳給他。

對老布希夫婦來說,一生最大傷痛是女兒羅賓(Robin Bush)3歲那年早逝。老布希的妻子芭芭拉(Barbara Bush)今年4月逝世。小布希說,儘管父親很堅強,但他知道,父親一直想再次緊握母親的手。他悼念到最後時再也忍不住悲傷,哽咽對父親說道:「(您是)偉大、高尚的人,對子女來說是最棒的父親。雖然悲傷,但讓我們微笑告別,您將再次抱著羅賓、牽起媽媽的手。」

老布希的喪禮,讓政治立場分裂的華府政界人士難得有平靜齊坐的一天,美國總統川普夫婦、前總統歐巴馬伉儷及不少外國元首及代表出席老布希的國葬。

國葬儀式結束後,老布希靈柩運回休士頓,暫厝聖馬丁聖公會教堂(St Martin’s Episcopal Church),預定明天下葬於德州農工大學老布希總統圖書館的私人墓園。
