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

"As much as our family is going to miss this dog, we're comforted to know he'll bring the same joy to his new home, Walter Reed, that be brought to 41", the 43rg president wrote. On Monday, President Trump tweeted, "Looking forward to being with the Bush Family to pay my respects to President George H.W. Bush".

Sully accompanied Bush one last time on a flight to Washington D.C. for memorial services. "Thank you for your service, Mr. President".

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.

Mr. Bush was a decorated World War II fighter pilot who dedicated his life to public service as a congressman, ambassador, Central Intelligence Agency director, vice president and the 41st president, but the AP's tweet focused on his defeats.

To honor the former president, the worldwide nonprofit Points of Light, founded by Bush, invited the public to celebrate Bush by giving a day of service in his memory. Sully had been trained by America's VetDogs, a nonprofit that provides service dogs.

He died aged 94 in Houston, Texas. The loyal pup became the 41st President's companion back in June after his wife, Barbara, died in April.
