(Washington, DC) – U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) issued the following statement in response to the passing of former First Lady Barbara Bush:

“My heart goes out to the entire Bush family during this difficult time,” said Senator Shaheen. “During Barbara Bush’s many trips to New Hampshire, we came to know and respect her principles and character. Both as First Lady and as a private citizen, Barbara Bush devoted her time and energy to improving the lives of others through numerous charities, and leaves behind a legacy through her tireless work promoting literacy.
