People who watched the live stream of former President George H.W. Bush's funeral caught a moment between former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Michelle Obama.

After he walked down the aisle into the church, Bush leaned over and put something in Michelle's hand. In response, she smiled back at him and his ability to think of others while mourning the passing of his beloved father. 

People on Twitter conjectured over what it was. Some thought it might be a note, but others agreed that it was a piece of candy.

The consensus seems to be that Bush passed her a piece of hard candy. The 43rd president gave Michelle a piece of candy at John McCain's funeral in August.

In giving Michelle a piece of candy, Bush remembered what has become an inside joke for the pair. It was a sweet moment in a time of mourning. 

Later, former President Bush tearfully eulogized his father. He remembered the kind of driven man his father was and his love for his wife and family.
