I figured that might be the case Michael, and I was hoping someone who knew more about it than I did could offer some background. Thanks.

You can even see part of the railing Bush is sitting on, although it looks like it was upgraded a bit over the years.

And the man sitting in the center holding a baseball is a roughly 20-year-old Amos Alonzo Stagg (he would die in 1965 at the age of 102).

We preserve our trees in New Haven and do so without pruning.

Could someone please post the picture of his service dog, Sully, sleeping next to H.W.'s flag-drapped coffin?

'MISSION ACCOMPLISHED'

Definitely the most moving picture I've seen this year.

Thanks for all the great posts in this thread. Great reads indeed. I teared up a little with the photo of his service dog.
