I believe Pres. Bush had a daughter who died of leukemia at a young age.

**The Bushes lost their first daughter, Robin, to leukemia at the age of four 59 years ago.**

Regardless of how one feels about his politics, he comes across as a genuinely nice human being.

I had an aunt, now deceased, who lived down the road from them. Yes, it is beautiful.

I wish Mr. Bush hadn’t gone to the White House last week and kissed up to Obama, an avowed enemy of the United States who is doing his best to destroy our country.

Say what you will about the Bush policies (Jeb included), but they are a group of classy, kind and generous people.

Politics aside, one true gentleman and a gentle man of the old school.

I wish so many young men of today had an ounce of the class Poppy has.

Sorry, but Kind and Generous are not the adjectives I would apply to people trying to destroy my country using Amnesty.

Traitorous fits, not Kind and Generous.
