Family and friends of George H.W. Bush have gathered in Texas as the nation says its final goodbye to the 41st President of the United States.
A private ceremony will be held at St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston Thursday.
It's the same church where mourners said goodbye to Barbara, his wife of 73 years, this past April.
The president will be buried following Thursday’s service in College Station near his library and museum.
He will be alongside the love of his life and the couple's daughter, Robin, who died of leukemia at age three.
To get to College Station, the president's casket will travel on a train named after him.
