Barbara Bush:  “I Have No Fear Of Death”
Former First Lady Barbara Bush passed away on Tuesday at the age of 92, with no fear of dying, because of her faith in God.

Mrs. Bush, whose health had been failing for a while, discussed her faith and how she was using it to face death, during an interview with C-SPAN back in 2013.

“I pray,” Bush said. “George and I pray every night, out loud, and sometimes we fight over whose turn it is, but we do.”

Mrs. Bush said that her faith helps her face the end of her life, which she admitted was approaching.

“I have no fear of death, which is a huge comfort because we’re getting darn close,” the former First Lady said. “I don’t have a fear of death for my precious George, or for myself, because I know that there is a great God, and I’m not worried.”

Barbara Bush had been in failing health, suffering from congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. After a series of hospitalizations, she decided not to seek further medical treatment, the family announced Sunday.

 The official funeral schedule has not yet been announced.

She and her husband, George H.W. Bush, the 41st president, were married longer than any presidential couple in American history, 73 years.
