Former leader's memorial service to hark back to 'kinder, gentler' era in US politics

WASHINGTON - The death of George H.W. Bush is bringing together the five remaining members of an oh-so-exclusive fraternity - the US presidents club. But for President Donald Trump, it may not be an entirely comfortable reunion, throwing him together with former occupants of the Oval Office who have given him decidedly mixed reviews.

Wednesday's state funeral for the late president was expected to be attended by "formers" Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter. The last time they were together with Trump was at his inauguration in 2017. Recalling the funerals for Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan, they will all sit together in Washington National Cathedral, with the exception of the younger Bush, who will be seated nearby with his family.
