Pence says the former president will be enshrined in Americans' hearts forever
Vice President Mike Pence gave the longest remarks, praising the former president's patriotism and kindness.
"While he was known as the quiet man, it was not for lack of nerve or daring. For in all of his 94 years, President Bush never lost his love of adventure and he never failed to answer the call to serve his country," Pence said.
But Pence cracked a couple jokes as well.
"I'm told as he prepared to become vice president, he once joked about the job, saying that there was 'nothing substantive to do at all,'" Pence said.
The 41st president, Pence said, will live on in the hearts of Americans forever.
