While Thanksgiving is nearly over, many across the country are appreciating those they love – whether alive or dead. George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, recently took time to appreciate his father.


Former President George W. Bush took to Instagram to share a tribute photo to his father, the late George H.W. Bush. The Instagram photo featured both men on a fishing trip as they enjoyed some time in the sun.

A marking on it also showed that it was taken in the summer of 1991, although it is unclear where it was taken. George Sr. dressed smartly in a windbreaker and a shirt, while George Jr. decided to go with just a t-shirt.

The younger George also had a pair of sunglasses and a hat. Both men had jeans on, while an aide looked on and sat behind them. Captioning the picture, the former President said:

"41 went to heaven two years ago today. Save a striper for me, Dad."


George H.W. Bush indeed died two years ago today. He had fought a battle with vascular Parkinson's disease for a long time, and he eventually padded at his home in Houston, Texas.


While he is gone, his children have continued to carry on his legacy. As for George Jr., he had the perfect way to do so – being President, just like his dad.

George Sr. told Barbara that she has never been more beautiful. Those were his last words to her.


Along with George Sr., his wife, Barbara, had died just months before him. The former First Lady died in April 2018. George Sr. left behind one of the strongest political legacies. Two of his children, George Jr. and Jeb, have served at high levels of political office.

Asides from his children, grandchildren have also been known to remember some of their fondest memories of him. Earlier this year, Jenna Bush Hager, the daughter of George Jr., shared a fond memory of her grandfather.


In her book, titled "Everything Beautiful in Its Time," the former first daughter and "Today Show" host recalled the last words George Sr. had told her twin sister, Barbara.

The words came on Barbara's wedding day. As Jenna recalled, George Sr. was in a wheelchair and was also mourning the loss of his wife at the time. Still, he wanted to celebrate with Barbara on her nuptials.

As Jenna recalled, the grandpa had sat between her and Barbara at a family dinner. There, George Sr. told Barbara that she has never been more beautiful. A month afte, he died. As far as closure goes, that was a pretty strong moment.
