Three former US presidents, three former first ladies and current first lady Melania Trump pose with former president H.W Bush during the funeral of his wife Barbara Bush
The funeral service took place on Saturday at St Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston, Texas.
The former president broke down in tears as his son read aloud one of the dozens of love letters he wrote to his late wife Barbara as part of his moving eulogy at her funeral.
President Donald Trump was not present at the funeral but instead watched from Mar-a-Lago out of 'respect' for the Bush family and to 'avoid disruptions due to added security.'
The elder bush and his wife had been married for 73 years when she died on Tuesday at age 92.
Mrs Bush was buried in a gated plot at her husband's presidential library at Texas A&M University in College Station, which is about 100 miles from Houston.
