Today, Governor Pete Ricketts announced that all U.S. and Nebraska flags are to be flown at half-staff in honor of former First Lady Barbara Bush, who passed away at the age of 92.
Earlier, Governor Ricketts issued a statement following Barbara Bush’s passing:
“With First Lady Barbara Bush’s passing, America has lost an icon who will be remembered for her grace, her dignity, and her work championing literacy. She leaves behind a remarkable legacy in her family and their public service. Susanne and I send our prayers to the entire Bush family as they celebrate her life and grieve her passing.”
Flags will be flown at half-staff until sunset on her day of interment.
