Western Massachusetts political leaders are reacting to the death of Barbara Bush.
The former First Lady passed away at the age of 92 on Tuesday.
Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno called her a class act with tremendous dignity and noted he and his wife met the Bushes in Kennebunkport, Maine in 1998.
Congressman Richard Neal says Barbara Bush led an extraordinary life, was intelligent and gracious, and that the love she had for her family and the American people was clear to see.
Funeral services for former First Lady Barbara Bush are scheduled this week in Houston.
A memorial service is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday.
The wife of former President George H.W. Bush will be buried at the Bush Presidential Library Center in College Station, Texas.
