No Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass Here....
President George H.W. Bush's extended state funeral began its final stages on Thursday in Houston, Texas, with the second imposing church memorial in two days. His grandsons were honorary pallbearers and his granddaughters read scripture in a service bursting with faith and family – less about America’s last war-hero president than a gracious, devout patriarch. About 1,200 invited guests at St. Martin's Episcopal Church included members of the 41st president's family, Houston athletes and civic leaders who knew him as a service-minded American who invested more than four decades in merging his family's values with America's. He was 'the most gracious, most decent, most humble man I will ever know,' said George P. Bush, the late president's grandson who as the Texas land commissioner is the last current family member with a political future. Source
