Gov. Brian Sandoval has actually purchased U.S. and state flags to be flown at half-staff at the Capitol and other public structures up until sundown Saturday in honor of previous very first woman Barbara Bush, who passed away Tuesday at age 92.
Sandoval’s order follows President Donald Trump’s proclamation purchasing the U.S. flag at half-staff at the White House and federal buildings.
“The inmost compassions of all Nevadans are with the Bush family, as we keep in mind Mrs. Bush’s exceptional life and legacy of service to the United States,” Sandoval said in his order.
After the previous very first girl’s death was revealed, some members of the Nevada congressional delegation required to Twitter to express their compassions.
“Our country will be permanently grateful (and) indebted for the impact previous First Lady Barbara Bush had on enhancing literacy in the United States,” U.S. Sen. Dean Heller wrote.
“Former First Girl Barbara Bush was a committed public servant, caring mom, a devoted better half,” U.S. Sen. Catherine Cortez-Masto tweeted. “Her love for her country (and) family is an example for us all.”
“Sad news concerning the death of First Girl and First Matriarch Barbara Bush. My ideas are with the Bush household at this time,” U.S. Rep. Dina Titus stated.
Funeral services will be Saturday in Houston. Bush will be buried on the premises of the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum at Texas A&M University.
