A HARD GOODBYE
The revelation was made by James A. Baker III, Bush's friend and former chief of staff, as well as secretary of state, during an interview with the news outlet.
To Baker, it was a very emotional moment and one that he can't remember 'without welling up.' Unfortunately, George wasn't able to be physically present so their words were exchanged through a phone.
James Baker on former President George H.W. Bush's final words: “They got 43 on the phone and 43 said, ‘I love you dad and I just wanna, I’ll see you in heaven’ and 41 said, ‘I love you too,’ and those were the last words that he ever spoke." https://t.co/Ep5ZOz8pUB pic.twitter.com/RM7remJnuL— CNN (@CNN) December 2, 2018
Alongside Baker was his wife Susan, a couple of members of the Bush family and some friends, such as Neil Bush, his wife Maria and son Pierce, granddaughter Marshall Bush and the former president's former chief of staff Jean Becker.
Despite fulfilling his dream of returning to the family's compound in Kennebunkport, the death of his 73-year-old wife and former First Lady Barbara, Bush's health started to decline even more.
“I can’t even hardly talk about it without welling up.”
His final days were spent in bed and it was there that Bush was visited by former President Barack Obama on Tuesday, November 27, who happened to be in town.
At that point, he wouldn't eat at all, but he seemed to regain his appetite by Friday when he ate a couple of fruity drinks, boiled eggs and yogurt. Sadly, he died hours later.
Although it was sad to such a great man pass away, he had the chance to reunite with the love of his life, with whom he was married for 73 years and experienced the best that life has to offer.
