Missouri politicians gave their condolences and remarks on Former President George H.W. Bush’s death.
Bush died Friday at age 94.
Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler made the following statement:
“Like Americans all across our nation, I was saddened to learn of the news of the passing of President George H.W. Bush. ‘Bush 41,’ as he was affectionately known, served his country in World War II as a combat pilot, then extended his service to America as an envoy to China, U.S. Representative, CIA Director, Vice President, and finally President of the United States. America has lost a true statesman. My thoughts and prayers are with the Bush family at this time.”
U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement on the passing of President George H.W. Bush:
“George H.W. Bush had the best qualities of his generation; stand up straight and take responsibility, share the credit and take the blame. He loved his country and served it with capacity, modesty and dignity. His mastery of foreign policy was most evident as the Soviet Union collapsed and Eastern Europe moved toward democracy. His example and service made a world changing difference.”
