WASHINGTON, D.C. - Wednesday is the National Day of Mourning held to honor former President George Herbert Walker Bush who died last week at the age of 94.

Dignitaries from around the world are among about 3000 people attending Wednesday's state funeral in the nation's capital.

The flag draped casket carrying President George Herbert Walker Bush arrived at the National Cathedral for his state funeral.

President Trump, four former presidents, and world leaders packed the cathedral as America said a final farewell to a war hero, statesman and the nation's 41st president.

George W. Bush said about his father, "Through our tears let us know the blessings of knowing and loving you, a great and noble man, the best father a son or daughter can have. And in our grief let us smile knowing that dad is hugging Robin and holding mom's hand again. Former President George H.W. Bush is also being remembered as a dedicated family man who lived life to its fullest.

Alan Simpson, a former U.S. Senator, said, "The most decent and honorable man I ever met was my friend George Bush -- one of nature's noble men.  His epitaph, perhaps just a single letter, the letter 'L' for loyalty," Simpson continued.

A 21-gun salute paid tribute to former President Bush at the capitol where Americans lined up for hours this week to pay their respects. 

Bush was the 11th president to lay in state in the capitol rotunda. Members of the Bush family visited again last night to thank mourners for their support.

He will be buried tomorrow in Texas alongside his daughter who died at age of three and his wife, Barbara, who died in April.
