The news that George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st president of the United States, had died at 94 on Friday set off a flurry of commemorations and remembrances from family, friends, colleagues and strangers throughout the world who were touched by his life.

The nation is looking back on Bush’s leadership and moral character, as well as the economy under his stewardship and the decades of service he dedicated to the country.

President Trump and first lady Melania Trump also said they joined the nation in grieving for Bush. They said he “always found a way to set the bar higher” and guided the nation with “sound judgement, common sense, and unflappable leadership.”

“Through his essential authenticity, disarming wit, and unwavering commitment to faith, family, and country, President Bush inspired generations of his fellow Americans to public service — to be, in his words, ‘a thousand points of light’ illuminating the greatness, hope, and opportunity of America to the world,” the Trumps wrote.
