Barbara Bush's medical doctor, Dr. Manny Alvarez, stated just a few days ago that Barbara was focusing on only 'comfort care' after a number of recent hospitalizations. Having complications of congenital heart disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, the 92 year old former first lady grew weary of treatment. The fiercely loyal wife to her husband, former president George Herbert Bush, she was an admired public figure and charitable donor.
In her last days, she chose to be surrounded by many loving family members in the time of her failing health. She is survived by five children, 14 grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren.

We humbly thank you in advance to bring the family and friends of Barbara closer together than ever in their relationship with Jesus, for all to be re-united in the spectacular glory of Heaven. Amen.
Former First Lady Barbara Bush was having an intense discussion with her husband George Bush and her son George W., back when the elder George was still the president of the United States. George W. was adamant that salvation cannot be obtained by any others means except through the acceptance of Jesus and the repentance of sins.
Barbara Bush stated that certainly God with his mercy and grace would have a plan for the followers of other religions. Eventually, Mrs. Bush said to someone, "Get me Billy Graham."
The White House operators quickly got Mr. Graham on the phone. Barbara Bush told him about her discussion with her husband and son. Billy Graham stated that as a believer in Jesus and the New Testament, he had to agree with her son that the only way to Heaven is through personal faith in the Lord Jesus. Barbara and the Bush family later stated that on a number of occasions, Billy Graham was a catalyst in changing their lives in varying ways including regarding their relationship with Jesus.
