He was the 41st President of the United States from 1989 to 1993.
He was the last of his kind.
A quiet statesman long misunderstood,(!!!) much too late appreciated (!!!), a wistful memory of the worthy humility of this office, which his successors, including his own son, could only aspire to – and which the current president completely lacks.
Wir Deutsche haben ihm sehr viel zu verdanken und wir trauern um einen echten Freund.
Ruhe in Frieden.
