Former U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, now the everlasting U.S. consultant to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, described Bush as "certainly one of America's most-loved ladies", whereas "The View" co-host Meghan McCain referred to as her "a girl of nice energy, patriotism and an iconic first girl of our occasions who has touched and impressed numerous lives".

Earlier this year, the former first lady wrote about her husband in a note for the spring edition of Smith College's alumnae magazine.
"She is more than a matriarch", Card said by telephone Sunday.
