Some critics tried to make a big deal about the exchanges on social media. However, the exchange was a terrific gesture from both sides. It showed that civility is truly the higher road that we should all strive to take in our daily lives.

The President and former Presidents watched on as George W. Bush delivered the final eulogy for the service. He closed by saying that he spoke to his dad just before he died and told him that he had been a "wonderful dad" and that he loved him. During the eulogy at the service, George W. Bush said his dad's "last words on earth were `I love you, too.'
