U.S. Representative Bill Flores (R-Texas) issued the following statement regarding the passing of former-President George H. W. Bush:

“America has suffered a great loss with the passing of our 41st President, George H.W. Bush. He was a true patriot and the epitome of a public servant — serving in the Navy, in Congress, as an Ambassador, as CIA Director, as Vice President and as President of the United States of America. He was a strong advocate for public and community service by encouraging volunteerism and for Americans to aspire to help one another. I will never forget the wisdom and support that he personally gave me when I started my path in public service. As Congressman for the 17th District, I am humbled to represent his adopted home, Texas A&M University, the location of his Presidential Library where he and Barbara will be interred together. Together, they left an unforgettable example of love, humility and servant leadership for all of us who call the Brazos Valley home. George H.W. Bush will forever be remembered as a leader, a statesman, loyal husband, loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather, mentor and friend. In particular, Gina and I will never forget the examples of down-home hospitality that he shared with us. As a couple of folks who grew up in a small town in the Texas Panhandle, we would often pinch ourselves as we concluded each of our get-togethers with George and Barbara.

“Our prayers and condolences go out to the entire Bush family, although they can now rest easy as George and Barbara are once again together celebrating their love with our Lord in Heaven.  During this time of solemn remembrance, I ask that all Americans keep the Bush family and our country in our prayers.”

For nearly a decade, if the United States wanted to explore space, we had to rely on foreign nations to get us there. Today, however, unprecedented cooperation between the federal government and American private companies gave rise to a new era of American leadership in space exploration. Congratulations SpaceX and NASA!
