Bush died Friday night at his home in Houston. He was 94-years-old. His death was announced by his office and came less than eight months after his wife, Barbara Bush died. The two were married for 73 years.

President Trump released a statement proclaiming that out of respect for the 41st president of the United States, the United States Postal Service will suspend regular mail deliveries, retail and administrative activities on Wednesday, Dec. 5.
