A national day of mourning unfolded Wednesday as America honored its 41st president, George H.W. Bush, whose state funeral took place in Washington. Amid the hymns, prayers, tears and tributes, there was also plenty of laughter.
But first: Know a pup named Max or Bella? Of course you do. They're the most popular dog names of 2018.
America says goodbye to a president. A president says goodbye to his father.
The nation was told of former president George H.W. Bush's humor, generosity, work ethic and adventurous spirit at his state funeral Wednesday. Before his father died, George W. Bush thanked him for being his dad and told him he loved him, he said. "The last words he would ever say on earth were, 'I love you, too,'" he recalled.

Hillary Clinton didn't even look at Trump when he entered the Washington National Cathedral
George W. Bush handed Michelle Obama something before he sat down as part of an inside joke (It was likely a really old mint.)
Mourners at the funeral also laughed — and that's the way Bush would have wanted it
