Today many are in mourning following the death of former president George H.W. Bush’s death at 94-years-old. The 41st president took his final breaths less than a year after losing his beloved wife Barbara at 92-years-old back in April. Now many are wondering if the president died due to a broken heart, according to Today.
The former president was laid to rest on Wednesday at a funeral attended by many at the Washington National Cathedral. During a touching eulogy for his father, former president George W. Bush spoke of his father’s heartbreak following his mother’s death. Bush was crushed after losing his wife who was the love of his life and wanted nothing more than to be reunited with her again.
“Dad is… holding mom’s hand again,” George W. Bush said, as he assured loved ones that his father had found peace in heaven.
