Ferguson Statement on Passing of President George H. W. Bush
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Drew Ferguson (R-Ga.) today released the following statement on the passing of former President George H. W. Bush:
“President George H.W. Bush was a man of integrity and humility and a devoted public servant throughout his life.
“He once said that ‘the American Dream means giving it your all, trying your hardest, accomplishing something. And then I'd add to that, giving something back. No definition of a successful life can do anything but include serving others.’
“As a WWII Navy veteran, Member of the House, Ambassador to the United Nations, Chairman of the Republican National Committee, Director of the CIA, Vice President and 41st President of the United States, there is no question that President Bush devoted his life to serving his fellow Americans.
“My prayers are with President Bush’s loving family and many friends. As we mourn the loss of this inspiring leader, I also hope we will honor his legacy by serving others in our own lives.”
