It was as if grace and decorum suddenly descended on Washington, if only for a short time.  In the Capitol rotunda, the forty-first president, George H.W. Bush was eulogized by congressional leaders and the Vice-President.

The former president’s flag-draped casket arrived on Air Force One, before being transferred to Capitol Hill late Monday afternoon. The coffin will lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda until Wednesday.

Along with Vice President Mike Pence, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell also offered remarks about the passing of the 94-year-old (watch the full ceremony above).

Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Chuck Schumer were also in attendance, placing wreaths near the coffin.

Supreme Court justices were also present at the gathering.

Donald Trump made a brief, unexpected visit to the rotunda later in the evening.

A funeral will be held Wednesday at Washington National Cathedral. The New York Times also reports:

President Trump will attend but not speak at this week’s funeral service for former President George Bush, seemingly a compromise intended to respect tradition while avoiding an awkward moment given the animosity between the current president and the Bush family.

Instead, eulogies will be delivered by former President George W. Bush, Mr. Bush’s son, and two friends, former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney of Canada and former Senator Alan Simpson, Republican of Wyoming. Rounding out the speakers will be Jon Meacham, the Pulitzer-winning historian and author of the definitive biography of the 41st president.
