In College Station, students gathered Friday night at The Bush School of Government and Public Service to remember and honor the former president.

In light of the former president's passing on Friday, a local man shared his story of driving in George H.W. Bush's motorcade when he visited San Diego. He says he drove three times with Bush.

Michael Pallamary was an active politician during the time Bush was president.

"We will be spending three days of mourning and three days celebrating a really great man's life".
