HOUSTON (AP) - Former President George W. Bush says he and his family are saddened by the death of his mother, former first lady Barbara Bush.
But the 43rd president says the family's "souls are settled because we know hers was."
A family spokesman says Barbara Bush died Tuesday. A family statement Sunday had said she had decided to terminate medical treatment for assorted ailments and would seek comfort therapy instead.
In his statement, George W. Bush calls his mother "a fabulous first lady and a woman unlike any other who brought levity, love and literacy to millions." He says his mother "kept us on our toes and kept us laughing until the end."
