To remember and honor the late President George H.W.Bush many visited the Presidential Library and Museum in College Station.
Fox 44 spoke with several visitors Saturday who say this place is truly breathtaking, but now with the president passing away there is a profound sense of loss.
Elizabeth Rozier, a visitor says, “There is a solemnity that is very present here today.”
She also took time to honor the legacy of the 41st President.
Rozier says, “George Bush is remembered as a great Houstonian, a great Aggie, an honorary Aggie, we loved him in our Aggie family.”
Visitors wrote down their condolences and wishes, as well as learned about the president’s service to our nation.
David Anaya with the library and museum says, “From the time he joined the Navy as one of the youngest aviator pilots to time in Congress and serving United Nations, being in China, director of CIA.
He helped raise millions of dollars for cancer research, he founded the Thousand Points of Light – the great volunteer work.”
The museum kept tourists coming – this year about 200,000 visited.
But why did the president adopt this place?
Anaya says, “It was the spirit of this place he said it was the Aggie spirit, something people could not understand, he said it was the mood on campus.”
In addition to the leader’s great accomplishments, many also admired his long lasting marriage.
Rozier says, “It is sweet and something that our culture lacks – a lasting legacy of marriage.”
This week there will be no admission fee, but the hours and even days when this building will be open will vary.
