In a sweet post on Monday, former first daughter Chelsea Clinton recalled the first time she met George H.W. Bush as a little girl.
In the photo, Bush is crouched low in front of Clinton, who stands in between her parents, Bill and Hillary Clinton.
"I remember his kindness toward me and my parents gently point out he was both kind & good enough to direct me to the restroom!" she wrote. "I'm very grateful for the friendship our families share."
Sure enough, the Bushes and the Clintons have been close for many years, despite being on different sides of the political fence.
Former President Bill Clinton remembered his predecessor in a touching Washington Post op-ed over the weekend.
"He was an honorable, gracious and decent man who believed in the United States, our Constitution, our institutions and our shared future," he wrote.
He also called his friendship with Bush "one of the great gifts of my life."
