WASHINGTON — Never before has one president eulogized another who was also his father. In 1826, President John Quincy Adams did not learn his father, John Adams, the second president, had died until after he had been buried.
“Through our tears, let us know the blessings of knowing and loving you, a great and noble man. The best father a son or daughter could have,” said former President George W. Bush as he eulogized his father Wednesday.
The article goes on to state the following:
For a moment, through a choked back sob, the son sounded like any man bidding his father farewell. But not just any man could say this: “He showed me what it means to be a president who serves with integrity, leads with courage and acts with love in his heart for the citizens of our country.”
