Bishop Deeley’s Statement on the Passing of President George H.W. Bush

“On behalf of the Diocese of Portland, I offer my prayerful sympathy to the Bush family after the passing of President George H.W. Bush. America has lost a true gentleman and leader, and Maine has lost a friend. President Bush was inspired by a call to serve his country and a desire to help people in need. He will be remembered for his integrity. A man of faith and humility, may he be at peace with the Lord he served in life, and may those who loved him, in Maine and around the world, be comforted by God’s grace.”
