Solemn public pays tribute to Bush before dawn in Rotunda

Trained to assist U.S. army veterans as part of the VetDogs programme, Sully was joined by several army veterans - some of who were in wheelchairs from injuries incurred during their time in action - and one of the late president's sons, Neil Bush.

A visibly emotional Dole was wheeled into the Capitol rotunda where Bush's body lie in state.

During Dole's salute to Bush, the attending crowd remained silent.

One of those who entered the Rotunda Tuesday was former Senator Bob Dole, a rival to Bush in the 1988 Republican presidential primary.

President from 1989 to 1993, Mr Bush died on Friday at 94.

Those insults have been set aside, but the list of funeral service speakers marked the first time since Lyndon Johnson's death in 1973 that a sitting president was not tapped to eulogize a late president.

President Donald Trump, a fellow Republican, planned to visit with the mourning family at Blair House, near the White House. The sweet exchange caught on camera of grieving former US President and former first lady at the funeral services is now going viral.

In June, Cardi B revealed that they had been married the whole time, saying, "There are moments that I want to keep to myself". Rapper Cardi B has said that she and her husband Offset have called it quits and plan to get a divorce.


As a specially-trained service dog, Sully was able to assist Bush, who was suffering from Parkinson's in his later years, by opening doors and being able to get help, should the former president have needed it.

In an invocation opening Monday evening's ceremony, the U.S. House chaplain, the Rev. Patrick J Conroy, praised Bush's commitment to public service, from Navy pilot to congressman, United Nations ambassador, envoy to China and then Central Intelligence Agency director before being elected vice president and then president.

Bush then shook hands with former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, causing her to smile when he passed her what appeared to be a piece of candy.

The late Mr Bush called Mr Trump a "blowhard".

The images come just days after Sully's Instagram account shared a photo of the visibly sad pup in front of Bush's casket.

There, a motorcade will take Bush to his presidential library at the university, where he will be laid to rest at a private ceremony next to his wife, Barbara, who died in April, and his daughter Robin, who died at age 3 in 1953.

Commuters should expect traffic in downtown DC before and after his funeral.
