Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) issued the following statement:

“I join the nation in honoring the life and legacy of President George. H.W. Bush, a true son of America who lived an extraordinary life of service, grace, strength, and character. He embodied what it means when we say the ‘Greatest Generation.’

“President Bush will be remembered by the world for his enduring strength that brought an end to the Cold War, his extraordinary commitment to serving others through his thousand points of light, and his beautifully written letters. He was truly a great man who lived a giant life.

“I am so blessed to have met President Bush many times while serving his son President George W. Bush in the White House. I am praying for the entire Bush family at this difficult time. I know his beloved angels Barbara and Robin are welcoming this hero in Heaven. May He Rest In Peace.”
