He was denied a second term by Clinton, who would later become a close friend.

On Wednesday, he'll be honored and remembered with a state funeral at the National Cathedral, where numerous luminaries, including former Presidents, will be in attendance. Bush's family has not said who will speak at the service.

The German government press service announced Monday that German Chancellor Angela Merkel will fly to Washington, DC, to take part in the memorial service for the late president, who oversaw the end of the Cold War and the reunification of Germany.

X-Men actress Olivia Munn shared the photo, saying: "President George H.W. Bush". The current and all former first ladies are also expected to attend, except for Rosalynn Carter, according to the sources.

The 54-year-old mother of two - America's first African American first lady and wife of the first black United States president - is wildly popular at home and overseas, loved for her warm personality, intelligence and women's activism.

The service dog was assigned to former Prez Bush back in June, and Bush family spokesman Jim McGrath says Sully - trained by the nonprofit group America's VetDogs - will be reassigned now.

Former President George H.W. Bush will be laid to rest wearing a pair of his trademark colorful socks.

Sully is named after the airline pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who landed a passenger jet on the Hudson River in 2009, saving all 155 passengers and crew on board. He will be buried next to wife, Barbara, and their daughter, Robin, who died in 1953.
