Friends and colleagues of former President George H.W. Bush will join the Sunday news show circuit this week as news networks examine the life and legacy of America's 41st president.

The 94-year-old Republican died Friday, according to a late-breaking statement released through his son, former President George W. Bush, following his wife Barbara who died in April.


In the statement, the Bush family said it was “deeply grateful for 41’s life and love, for the compassion of those who have cared and prayed for Dad, and for the condolences of our friends and fellow citizens."
