We lost former first Lady Barbara Bush at 92 yesterday. Was watching some of the news coverage last night. It has been a while since she was in the White House spot light so I kind of forgot how funny and feisty she was.
Here are some of the things Presidents and others celebs are saying about Barbara and a little more about her life. I loved her sense of humor.

Barbara Bush & Big Bird shared more than the same initials - they shared a love of friends & family, of teaching children their ABCs, of helping others, and a generosity of spirit. We will miss her warmth, humor, & friendship. Our hearts are with the entire Bush family. pic.twitter.com/I0EGeJ9bqb— Sesame Street (@sesamestreet) April 18, 2018
Barbara Bush was a remarkable woman. She had grit & grace, brains & beauty. She was fierce & feisty in support of her family & friends, her country & her causes. She showed us what an honest, vibrant, full life looks like. Hillary and I mourn her passing and bless her memory.— Bill Clinton (@BillClinton) April 17, 2018
