In keeping with presidential tradition, a detailed schedule of the funeral and memorial services for former President George H.W. Bush was released Saturday evening, with ceremonies planned in Houston, Washington, D.C., Spring, Texas, and College Station, Texas. US President Donald Trump, who plans to attend the funeral with first lady Melania Trump, also designated Wednesday as a national day of mourning, and ordered the lowering of the American flag for 30 days, Reutersreported. "It will then be reset and it will be sent to Houston to pick up the casket of President Bush and it will be sent back to Washington", Trump said, according to the report.

The White House said a state funeral would be held on Wednesday at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC. Texas A-and-M says that Bush will be buried alongside his wife Barbara and his daughter Robin in his family plot. "This state funeral is a culmination of years of planning and rehearsal to ensure the support the military renders President Bush is nothing less than a first-class tribute".

The elder Bush was well-respected before, during and after his presidency throughout the nation, especially in Texas which he called home.
