President George W. Bush sits at his desk in the Oval Office for the first time on Inaugural Day, in this January 20, 2001 file photo, as his father, former President George H.W. Bush looks on.

Bush then shook hands with former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, causing her to smile when he passed her what appeared to be a piece of candy. John McCain's funeral earlier this year.

After the lack of a simple hello, President Carter nervously checked his watch and turned his head away from the others to chat with his wife, former First Lady Rosalynn Carter. The bipartisan moment went viral, and Obama later told NBC's "Today" show Bush slipped her a mint.

From his love of family and politics to his passion for Houston sports and insane socks, we showcased President Bush's life and legacy. "That's how we sit at all the official functions so he is my partner in crime at every major thing where all the formers gather".

"We're gonna miss you", the 43rd president said of his father. He's a wonderful man.

Bush died last week in Houston at age 94.

"Dynasty is always a tough word", she said of the Bush family legacy, "but the family basically will have a position in the country of being a family that cares about public service".
