Michelle Obama postpones several book tour stops to attend George H.W. Bush’s funeral

Michelle Obama’s “partner in crime” may be former President George W. Bush, but his father has a special place in the former first lady’s heart too. 

Obama announced Sunday that she is postponing several upcoming stops on her “Becoming” book tour to attend President George H.W. Bush’s funeral services next week. The 41st president died Friday at his Houston home at age 94.

“It’s important to me to join the Bush family in celebrating …Bush’s exemplary life,” Obama wrote on Twitter. “This will unfortunately preclude my visits to Paris and Berlin. I’ve been deeply touched by the enthusiasm for my memoir, and I’m working to reschedule my trip for next year.”
