White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was moved by the “powerful story” about former President George H.W. Bush shared by the U.S. Secret Service on Wednesday.
Revealing Bush’s codename, Timberwolf, the Secret Service revealed what happened when he learned the 2-year-old son of the agents on his detail was diagnosed with leukemia.
“Everyone’s #TuesdayThoughts are on President Bush & we wanted to share a memory,” the Secret Service wrote in a tweet. “In ’13, Timberwolf learned that the 2-year-old son of an agent on his detail was diagnosed with leukemia & the detail was going to shave their heads. You can see what happened, in classic 41 manner.”

Thousands of Americans also lined up in the freezing cold for the chance to pay their final respects to the 41st president of the United States. It truly was a purely American moment.
The line to pay honor to George H.W. Bush.
I started at the end.
It’s freezing out.
Yet it took me nearly 15 minutes to film the full line that stretches the full length of the Capitol & back 7 (!) times.
I sped the video up x10 speed
He was beloved
