HOUSTON – A second funeral for President George H.W. Bush will take place in Houston Thursday morning at the church where the Bush Family worshipped.
People lined up Wednesday night at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church to pay their respects to the nation’s 41st president, who died last week.
It’s the same church where services for Bush’s wife, Barbara, were held in April.
One member from each of the five armed-service branches stood around Bush’s casket.
As mourners passed by, the sound of their footsteps was the only thing interrupting an otherwise quiet scene.
The line moved slowly and halted altogether whenever mourners stopped in front of the casket to cross themselves or otherwise acknowledge Bush.
One group of Navy sailors saluted as they filed past.
