Flags at half-staff for former President

A vigil was held Saturday on the grounds of Texas A-and-M University for former president George H.W. Bush who passed away Friday.

US President Donald Trump, who plans to attend the funeral with first lady Melania Trump, also designated Wednesday as a national day of mourning, and ordered the lowering of the American flag for 30 days, Reutersreported. "He was 94 and is survived by his five children and their spouses, 17 grandchildren, eight great grandchildren, and two siblings", the former president's office said in a statement.

Bush will be taken to his home of Houston, where he'll lie in repose at St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston from 7:45 p.m. ET Wednesday until 7 a.m. ET Thursday.
