(NEWS CENTER Maine)-- Shortly after the update on Barbara Bush's condition, social media love came pouring in for Mrs. Bush and her family. Her well documented work with children and children's charities was a common theme. Many posts used quotes from the former first lady. Like this one from Kids Meals Incorporated which read: "Giving frees us from the familiar territory of our own needs by opening our mind to the unexplained worlds occupied by the needs of others"
Some who reached out feel a personal connection to Mrs. Bush, this from a hospice nurse who says she's seen all the good that the Barbara Bush Children's Hospitals have been able to do. "I trust that the medical professionals, friends and family that surround you now have you well taken care of - but should you ever desire another helping hand on that last mile - it would be my honor and pleasure to help walk you home"
Fellow former first lady Hillary Clinton sent her thoughts: "Thinking about Barbara Bush's legacy of service to our country and the extraordinary family she raised. Thanking her for her many kindnesses to me and my family. Wishing her the comfort she deserves surrounded by her loved ones"
