Trump's tweets 'created a stir' at Barbara Bush's funeral: NYT reporter

The First Lady also posted a touching message on Instagram calling Barbara Bush a'fearless First Lady who led a'remarkable life

Former US presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, current first lady Melania Trump, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and former first lady Michelle Obama were all on hand for the service.

"She was our teacher and role model in how to live a life of objective and meaning", one of her four sons, former Florida governor and 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush, told the crowded Houston church. Barbara Bush earned her encomia for her work on literacy and her compassion, in an era that offered very little, towards gay Americans dying in the AIDS epidemic.

Her husband, likewise, is remembered as a reasonable, amiable man, who perhaps didn't have his wife's star power, but nonetheless governed in a responsible way, even reversing his pledge not to lower taxes when it became clear that a tax hike was needed to offset the exploding deficits of his predecessor. But just as Melania put politics aside for the Bush memorial service, she appears to have done so again in the name of acknowledging White House history for this special event.

It was the first time Trump had seen Clinton or Obama since the 2016 election and Inauguration Day in 2017.

Rachael Carter was at the church waiting to be reunited with her daughter, a 10th-grader who turned 16 this week. Three minutes later, the unnamed officer found a 17-year-old student shot with non-life threatening injuries.

"Find someone who smiles at you the way Melania Trump smiles at Barack Obama", another Twitter user, Grace, posted to her account. "Which we often don't see her doing in public".

Mourners gathered in Houston's Martin's Episcopal Church on Saturday for the funeral service of Barbara Bush, who died last week at the age of 92.

'It would have been exactly what Barbara Bush wanted, ' McGrath added.

About 1,500 people attended a private funeral on Saturday in Houston for the wife of former President George H.W. Bush.
