He will be buried alongside Barbara Bush, his wife of 73 years who died in April. He praised Bush as a "truly handsome human being" who had the "courage of a warrior but the greater courage of a peacemaker".

A 54-year-old Texan who served in the U.S. Air Force during "Operation Desert Storm" was waiting for the train to pass through Pinehurst so he could pay his respects to his former commander-in-chief.

In this October 18, 2005, file photo, a new locomotive numbered 4141 in honour of the 41st president, George H.W. Bush, is unveiled at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.

George W Bush and others from the family travelled on the flight from Houston.

But as the rain began to fall everyone opened big black umbrellas - everyone except George W Bush and Jeb. Pence said there was a kindness about Bush "that was evident to everyone who ever met him".

A visibly emotional Dole was wheeled into the Capitol rotunda where Bush's body lie in state.

Bush, who died Friday at the age of 94, will be memorialized on Wednesday at the National Cathedral in Washington. The Trumps are attending the funeral but are not expected to speak. In remarks at the Capitol, House Speaker Paul Ryan praised the two-term congressman from Texas as a "great man" and a "gentle soul". His casket will be transported by motorcade Wednesday morning to the National Cathedral, where a state funeral will be held at 11 a.m. EST - that's 9:30 pm IST. Apart from courteous nods and some handshakes, there was little interaction between Trump and the others.

George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton eventually became close friends and traveled together internationally. He took comfort in knowing "Dad is hugging Robin and holding Mom's hand again".

"After Mrs. Bush's death, general companionship was a big part of Sully's job", John Miller, president and CEO of America's VetDogs, said in a phone interview.
