Bush himself seemed to be holding back tears.

On Sunday, students, staff and visitors had flocked to George HW Bush's presidential library on the campus of Texas A&M University, with thousands of mourners paying their respects at a weekend candlelight vigil at a nearby pond and others contributing to growing flower memorials at Bush statues at both the library and a park in downtown Houston.
