Bush Presidential Library filled with respect for Barbara Bush

Country stars remember Barbara Bush

Ducey said in his announcement of the honor that Bush "will always be remembered as a true American treasure" and called her "a tireless advocate for family literacy".

"Somewhere out in this audience may even be someone who will one day follow in my footsteps and preside over the White House as the president's spouse", she said, "and I wish him well".

Family spokesman Jim McGrath said Mrs. Amongst her greatest achievements was recognizing the importance of literacy as a fundamental family value that requires nurturing and protection.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne Cheney, will attend as well, according to a source close to the family.

'My dear mother has passed on at age 92.
