NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (AP) — Former First Lady Barbara Bush is making sure to keep her alma mater up to date on what’s going on in her world.

The Boston Globe reports Thursday that Bush wrote a dispatch for Smith College’s alumnae magazine this month saying she’s “still old and still in love with the man I married 72 years ago.”

Bush dropped out of Smith in 1944 and married George H.W. Bush shortly after. The school awarded her an honorary degree in 1989.

Bush says in the magazine that all of her children are working and “serving others in their own way.” She says she’s “very proud of them.”

Bush has sent occasional updates to the alumnae publication going back to 1953 when it reported that her second son, Jeb, had been born.
