On Thursday, thousands of Houstonians turned up to pay their respects to late President George H.W. Bush.

Alongside his wife Barbara, who died in April, the late president had embraced the Texas city that became their home in 1958.

According to Reuters, Houston residents lay flowers at makeshift memorials and lined up to catch a glimpse of his funeral motorcade.

More than 11,600 residents visited the church where Bush’s body lay in repose to view his flag-draped casket.

He chose to live in our city and we were better for it. We will always remain grateful for his kindness, leadership and service.
