MONTGOMERY, Ala. — The Alabama Governor took to Twitter on April 18 to order flags at half-staff until sunset on Saturday.
Barbara Bush passed away on April 17 at the age of 92. This news comes after the family spokesman, Jim McGrath, released a statement of the Bush matriarch not seeking any medical attention – two days before.
At the request of @POTUS, I have ordered flags in Alabama to be displayed at half-staff to honor the life of former First Lady Barbara Bush. Flags should remained lowered until sunset on Saturday. pic.twitter.com/OlsKdrrtxx
