She was a Navy wife, albeit for a short time, so there’s no question about her spine of steel.
I have a certain affinity for President 41 and Mrs. Bush. They were married for 70 years, sticking together through war and peace and everything else that went on in that nearly 3/4 century. My mom and dad were married for 61 years when Dad passed away last December, again, sticking together through war and peace and everything else that went on from the mid 50s until today.
These two couples, and others, of course, were cut from a different cloth than that of today. A cloth that was finer, better woven, tougher and made with a love and dedication that is rarely seen today. My respect and admiration for them is endless.
RIP Barbara Bush.
