Jenna Bush Hager is remembering her late grandfather, former President George H.W. Bush, in the form of Instagram posts.
People reported that the “Today” show correspondent said she misses her grandfather, who died Friday night, but takes comfort in the fact that he has reunited with his wife, Barbara, who died in April.
"Waking up missing this giant of a man who gave me everything," she wrote in a post. "He taught me and my family about service, family, decency, the power of gentle words and a beautiful heart. I will miss him desperately but so happy he and my Grandmother are back together."
Hager also said she was comforted by a cartoon by Marshall Ramsey, of the Clarion Ledger. It depicted Bush arriving in heaven to reunite with Barbara Bush and their daughter, Pauline Robinson Bush, known as Robin, who died in 1953 at age 3 of leukemia.
Hager said she asked who her grandfather expects to reunite with. He said, “I hope I see Robin, and I hope I see my mom. I haven’t yet figured it out if it will be Robin as the three year old that she was, this kind of chubby, vivacious child or if she’ll come as a middle-aged woman, an older woman ... I hope she’s the three-year-old.”
