“He lived with two speeds, full throttle and sleep,” Pierce recalled of his presidential grandfather.

“We visited frequently when these guys were little squirts, when dad was president,” Neil remembered. “And it was just an awesome feeling to walk, to drive through the gates, to walk into the White House, to be welcomed by your father or mother or brother and sister-in-law into that special place.”

The son and father also remember First Lady Barbara Bush and open up about what she really thought of the former president’s birthday skydiving airplane jumps!

Dave also talks about his personal relationship that goes back decades with our nation’s 41st President and what it was like to cover his funeral.

Americans, from both sides of the aisle, will enjoy rarely heard stories of the Bush family who have been so influential in Houston.
