Meacham remembered Bush as "America's last great soldier statesman, a 20th century founding father", who stood firm against both totalitarianism and "unthinking partisanship".

All surviving former USA presidents were at the cathedral. The late president's eulogists - son included - noted Bush's tendency to tangle his words and show his goofy side.

Fox's Chris Wallace commented on the discernibly tense moment when President Donald Trump and first lady Melania joined the other former Presidents and first ladies. Retired Union Pacific General Director Mike Iden said that while touring the locomotive after its unveiling in 2005, Bush paused in the conductor's cab.

St. Martin's Episcopal Church was the Bush family church, and Bush's longtime pastor delivered the homily.

"He was ready for heaven and heaven was ready for him", Levenson said of Bush's declining in health in recent years. She softly thanked him.

The 43rd USA president had also given Mrs Obama a mint during the memorial service in September for Arizona Senator John McCain.

"This particular train trip...is a great opportunity for Texans and people all across the country to say their final goodbyes to this great man", he said.

"Those that travel the high road of humility in Washington are not bothered by heavy traffic", said former Sen.

It was a rare public sighting from Noelle, who avoids the spotlight and did not join her father Jeb on the campaign trail when he ran for president in 2016. Apart from courteous nods and some handshakes, there was little interaction between Trump and the others.

Bush Sr. was 94 when he died Friday night. "In our grief, I just smile knowing that dad is hugging Robin, and holding mom's hand again", he said.

Police are also recommending charges be brought against Elovitch and members of his family. Israeli law is unclear about whether an indicted prime minister would have to step down.
