"My wife Joyce and I are personally saddened by the passing of one of the most honorable decent men our country ever had serve as its president," Moore, of the former Sam and Dave soul duo, said in a statement shared with CP. 

"I had the honor of performing at his 1989 Inaugural concert Joyce co-produced, 'The Celebration for Young Americans,' his and Barbara’s 50th wedding anniversary celebration, where The Oak Ridge Boys helped celebrate them, The Points of Light Kennedy Center concert and fundraiser, and last year’s One America Appeal hurricane relief concert at Texas A&M in College Station.

"Our strength and comfort goes out to the entire Bush family who we’ve been fortunate to know, see and feel their collective love and admiration for Papa Bush who has now gone to join the love of his life, Barbara.

"Rest in Heaven President Bush with Mama and that beautiful little girl you two lost but never forgot, Robin. God speed sir."
