Former President George H.W. Bush thanked the City of Houston on Wednesday for their accommodation.

“My family and I thank Mayor @SylvesterTurner, his terrific staff, @houstonpolice, @METROHouston, @SBCHouston, @StMartinsDOK and really all Houstonians for your professionalism and obvious care in making Barbara’s visitors and funeral guests feel so welcomed. Thank you all,” Mr. Bush tweeted.
