"He and the first lady will attend the funeral at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C".

Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush will lie in state in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda starting Monday evening as Americans honor the life of the country's 41st president.

Many spoke of Bush's role in a bygone era of bipartisan civility in U.S. politics, a sharp contrast to today's bitter divisions in the age of President Donald Trump, a fellow Republican.

President Bush's spokesman Jim McGrath shared a photo of Sully and the casket captioning it, "Mission complete".

He said Bush was the first president he ever voted for and was "the first president to teach me and many of us that in a democracy sometimes you fall short", and how you handle that, "is just as important as how you win". He said condolences coming in from around the world were heartening.

Former President George H.W. Bush is remembered before the Pittsburgh Steelers play the San Diego Chargers at Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, PA, Dec 2, 2018.

Bush, also a former congressman, will be lying in state at the Capitol from Monday to Wednesday once his casket arrives from Houston. The chairman of the National Governor's Association at the time was then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton, who later defeated Bush in the 1992 presidential election.

After making the short trip back to the White House, Trump posted a video to Twitter with the hashtag #Remembering41.

State funerals are traditionally held for current or former presidents and other officials designated by the president. In August, the late GOP Sen.

Sen. John McCain, a war hero like Bush, is the last person to lie in state at the Capitol following his death in August. A funeral service is set for Wednesday at the National Cathedral. He died in Texas, his home state, late Friday at the age of 94 after several years of failing health. America's VetDogs, which trains and places dogs with veterans and first-responders, put Sully with Bush earlier this year and announced Sunday the dog will join Walter Reed National Military Medical Center's facility dog program after a stop in NY.

In Texas, students, staff and visitors have been flocking to Bush's presidential library on the campus of Texas A&M University, with thousands of mourners paying their respects at a weekend candlelight vigil at a nearby pond and others contributing to growing flower memorials at Bush statues at both the library and a park in downtown Houston.
