George H.W. Bush returned to the side of his wife and daughter on Thursday after nearly a week of tributes and remembrances. Along the way, thousands packed into the Capitol to see the former commander in chief one last time and others waited outside a Houston church where he worshiped for decades. United in grief and from all walks of life, his family, former presidents, world leaders, sports figures and celebrities were joined by countless other Americans, many of whom many have never met the 41st president, but all of who remembered a man who spent his life serving his country.
