"His spirit of service and decency will be missed by many, including our family."

She also hoped her readers and fans would understand her desire to attend Bush's funeral and to join her in 'paying tribute to him and his tremendous contributions to our world.'


Michelle had a special connection with the former President and they would always have a laugh whenever they would get together, as it can be seen in the picture shared by the Michelle on Instagram.


Along with the photo, in which Bush, who passed away on Friday night, November 30, can be seen landing a sweet and affectionate kiss on her cheek, Michelle left a few words of comfort.

"As a public servant, father, and grandfather, President George H.W. Bush was an extraordinary example for us all. His spirit of service and decency will be missed by many, including our family."
