It was a tender moment as Lynda Johnson Robb, daughter of President Lyndon Johnson and First Lady Ladybird Johnson, paused for a moment at the State Funeral in the Capital Building’s rotunda, and shed some tears.
It was a beautiful reflection of the child of the 36th Democratic President honored the 41st Republican President lying in state.
When Lyndon and Ladybird Johnson left the White House in 1969 following the inaugural ceremonies, George and Barbara Bush traveled to Andrews Airforce Base to bid them farewell. George Bush also requested his Texas staff to step outside the office when President Johnson’s motorcade passed upon his return to Texas.
Barbara Bush told Ladybird, “We Bushes love you Johnsons.”
