The letters written by the former First Lady's granddaughter gave a sneak peek of her impeccable and jolly character.


As reported by Faith Tap, Jenna Bush penned a letter in honor of her grandmother and former first lady, Barabara Bush. Jenna shared a few glimpses of the fulfilled life led by Barbara.

Barbara succumbed to her deteriorating health on 17th April at the age of 92. She was in a constant battle with  Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and congestive heart failure.

The mother of six served her time as the First Lady fighting for family literacy and championing for children with HIV all over the globe. She continued working for charity even after her husband, George H. W. Bush, left office.


In a poignant letter written by Jenna to her grandmother, she mentioned that the family lost one of the greats after they lost Barbara. She would always be the rock of the Bush family as she held the family together through these years.

Jenna revealed that she and the entire family would feel proud and content when strangers approached her and told her how much they loved Barbara. The Bush family loved to share her with the world. 


Jenna and her husband had asked Barbara to read at their wedding hoping that the love between Barbara and George would rub on their future in a good way.

Jenna also vowed to pass on the love letters shared by her doting grandparents to her daughters so that they can learn what true love means.

The 36-year-old recalled the summers that the family spent together at Kennebunk when the cousins sneaked in a soap into their hot tub to enjoy a bubble bath.

For Jenna, Barbara's image with her signature pearls and her hair will forever be cherished in her memory. Barbara's son and the 43rd POTUS, George W. Bush, shared that his mother stayed 'pretty funny to the end.'
