Melania Trump & First Families Say Goodbye to Barbara Bush

American political families from both sides of the aisle gathered to pay tribute to the life of former first lady Barbara Bush today.

After a battle with illness, Bush chose to end medical treatment last week. She passed away at age 92 Tuesday, with her husband, former President George H.W. Bush, by her side at their Houston home.

The elder Bush president was joined by the rest of his famous family, including former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, who sported a black sheath dress for the occasion.

As first lady, Bush worked to increase literacy rates. She also is one of only two women to have both been both first lady and mother to a president.
