America's leading political and religious figures have come together to offer their condolences to the family of former first lady of the United States Barbara Bush, who died on Tuesday at the age of 92.

Big-name preachers such as Joel Osteen and Franklin Graham, including former presidents and current First Lady Melania Trump, all hailed Bush's dedication, service to others, and commitment to family.

Former President George H.W. Bush's website announced the news on Tuesday evening, noting that she leaves behind her husband of 73 years, including five children and their spouses, as well as 17 grandchildren.
