    After nearly 40 years of protection, the U.S. Secret Service has ended its detail for President George H.W. Bush, known by the code name "Timberwolf."

    The agency said its security detail officially ended at 6 a.m. Friday "with no incidents to report" following Bush's burial Thursday at his presidential library at Texas A&M University. In its final notification, the Bush Protective Division said: "You will be missed by all of us."

    Bush died on Nov. 30 at the age of 94. He was buried next to his wife, Barbara, and their daughter Robin, who died at age 3.

    On Twitter, the agency paid tribute to Bush and shared photos from 2013, when Bush shaved his head in support of an agent's 2-year-old son who had leukemia.
