Washington - Former President George W. Bush says he told his father just before he died that he had been a “wonderful dad” and that he loved him. Delivering a eulogy at the elder Bush’s funeral on Wednesday, George W. Bush said the last words his father “would ever say on earth were, ‘I love you, too.’”

George W. Bush extolled his father not only for his service as president but also as a role model as a loving husband, father and grandfather. He said he was the best father a son or a daughter could have.

Bush choked up at the end of his eulogy before regaining his composure. He patted his father’s flag-draped coffin twice as he went back to his seat at the Washington National Cathedral. Former first lady Laura Bush wiped her eyes with a tissue as her husband sat next to her.
