The funeral service for former President George H.W. Bush was held on Wednesday at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC.

Seated in the front row were all living former presidents as well as current president, Donald Trump. It made for an interesting dynamic front and center at the funeral service.

When the Bush family arrived, former President George W. Bush greeted President Trump, Melania, and the other former presidents and first ladies seated in the front row.

His actions when he greeted Michelle Obama has received special attention as he appeared to slip her something when shaking her hand.

This candy-sharing moment is similar to a moment between Bush and Obama at Sen. John McCain’s funeral a few months ago. Take a look and see if you can spot the moment in the video below.

Another viral moment was when George H.W. Bush’s service dog, Sully, spent Sunday night lying next to the former president’s flag-draped casket in Houston.

Jim McGrath, spokesperson for the Bush family, tweeted out a picture of Sully still faithfully serving at his master’s side with the caption “Mission complete.”

Sully even has his own Instagram page where the same picture and caption was shared.

Sully is a 2-year-old Labrador retriever and is named after the pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger III, who heroically landed a passenger plane on the Hudson River after striking a flock of geese on takeoff.

Sully was trained by America’s VetDogs, which trains service dogs for veterans, active-duty service members, and first responders.

The yellow lab became the 41st president’s service dog in June, just a few months after his wife, Barbara Bush, died.
