In his last hours, George H.W. Bush talked to his son, former President George W. Bush, on the phone.
The son told Bush Sr. that he had been a “wonderful father,” a source familiar with his last moments told CNN’s Jamie Gangel.
Bush 41 replied,
I love you, too.
The New York Times first reported the conversation.
Bush Sr. was also asked yesterday whether he wanted to go to the hospital, a source said.
He said no, the source said. He was ready to go and be with his wife Barbara and his daughter Robin, who died of leukemia as a child.
