Former first lady Barbara Bush has been laid to rest at her husband's presidential library in Texas.

Avid baseball fans, the Bushes regularly attended Houston Astros games, arriving at Minute Maid Park during pre-game activities and sitting next to the owners' seats behind home plate.

Denk said Barbara then went on in her deadpan way, "My husband won't talk to me because he won't take his nose out of the book".

Trump, who didn't actually tweet while the ceremony was in progress, took to Twitter shortly after, mocking the Democratic National Committee lawsuit over hacked emails.

It was a weekend of celebrating and remembering a life well-lived as thousands gathered in Houston to pay their respects to former First Lady (and Mother) Barbara Bush.

During her funeral Saturday at St. Martin's Episcopal Church, Bush was eulogized by her son, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, her friend and confidant Susan Baker and historian and author Jon Meacham.

Forman was accompanied by his Clumber Spaniel, George, named after the 43rd president, George W. Bush. Smith was cleaning up the floor of a cottage that was part of an interior design show and backed out of the house as she worked, right into someone. "This was her home". She said she chatted with her about spaniels, and why some have bobbed tails, and some do not, several years ago. I hope those are things we can get back to.

Mrs. Bush quickly filled the conversational silence. "You were a handsome light in this world and I am forever thankful for your friendship".

Trump dispatched his wife, Melania, as an emissary to attend on his behalf as the other former presidents and their wives - including Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack and Michelle Obama - paid proper homage to Barbara Bush, making Trump's absence all the more conspicuous and awkward.

"She was a Republican, but she was an American, a Texan and a Houstonian first", he said.
