WATCH: Barbara Bush’s funeral in Houston

Texas

Family and friends remembered former First Lady Barbara Bush at her funeral Saturday morning in Houston.

The invitation-only funeral started at 11 a.m. at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church.

After the service, Mrs. Bush was to be buried behind her husband’s presidential library at Texas A&M University. The gated plot is an area surrounded by trees and near a creek where the couple’s 3-year-old daughter, Robin, is buried. She died of leukemia in 1953. 

The day before her funeral, hundreds of mourners visited the church to pay their respects to the Bush family.
