A Local Remembrance of
an American Hero

George H.W. Bush


I never met President Bush (41) but I wrote him a letter to voice issues about LARGE Funeral Home chains like those in our community, dedicated to putting “Mom and Pop” funeral homes out of business. He responded with the following letter that exemplifies the kind of man he was.

Click on this link to view the letter.

This extraordinary American leader cared enough to reply to a total stranger and allay my concerns. George H. W. Bush (41) was a great man. America needs more like 41; we will miss him.

I will miss 41, too.

Charles W. Vaughn
Funeral Director
