"As much as our family is going to miss this dog, we're comforted to know he'll bring the same joy to his new home, Walter Reed, that he brought to 41", former President George W. Bush wrote on Instagram.

As of Monday morning, all living Presidents are expected to attend Bush's funeral on Wednesday at the Washington National Cathedral.

Bush died Friday night at his Houston home at the age of 94.

Haslam had previously ordered all flags over state buildings and the Tennessee Statehouse be lowered to half-staff until sunset on December 30 to honor Bush's life.

Following the week of services, Bush will be laid to rest on his presidential library grounds at Texas A&M University, where his wife and Robin, his daughter who died of leukemia in 1953, are buried.

The two-year-old Sully has been at Bush's side since June, just weeks after the death of the president's wife Barbara, to whom he was married for 73 years. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump are scheduled to attend. "Thank you for your lifetime of service Mr. President!"

Citing the former president's death, the White House also postponed a planned press conference in Buenos Aires on Saturday, promising to instead hold one in Washington at a later date.

Relatives accompanying the casket will include his sons, former President George W. Bush and Neil Bush, along with members of their immediate families.

The Bushes will join other family at Joint Base Andrews for the afternoon arrival of the presidential aircraft carrying the casket, being called "Special Air Mission 41".

The former president's remains will be flown to Washington, D.C. on Monday following a departure ceremony in Houston, Texas.

Bush, who was president from 1989 to 1993, will lie in state beneath the soaring U.S. Capitol rotunda for a ceremony and public visitation from Monday through Wednesday. He served our nation with humility and passion.

The photo touched the hearts of many Twitter users. Former President Jimmy Carter also will be there.

He was denied a second term by Arkansas Gov. Clinton, who would later become a close friend.

"Who would have thought that I would be working with Bill Clinton of all people?" he joked in 2005.

Bush visits a tent camp for quake survivors on the outskirts of Islamabad, Pakistan, in 2006.
