HOUSTON, Texas - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today issued the following statement on the passing of former President George H. W. Bush:

"Today, American hearts are heavy as we bid farewell to President George H.W. Bush. He will be remembered as a good and faithful servant to his country, whose great legacy of leadership and love of homeland became a family tradition, earned him the admiration of countless Americans, and secured him a special place in the memory of every Texan.

"Over his storied career, President Bush was a war hero and a businessman, a legislator and an ambassador. His time as Vice President prepared him well for the heavy burdens of that highest office, steering our nation through the fall of the Berlin Wall and the First Gulf War.

"President Bush was the last of the Greatest Generation to sit in the Oval Office, but his resolve will not be lost to the past; it will triumph onward. In his words, ‘the old ideas are new again because they are not old, they are timeless: duty, sacrifice, commitment, and a patriotism that finds its expression in taking part and pitching in.'

"Today, George and his beloved Barbara are together, enjoying a well-deserved rest from their labors.

"Today, his spirit joins a thousand points of light with his Creator, by whose brilliance may all our works be illuminated and inspired."
