The U.S. Secret Service ended its protective detail on former President George H.W. Bush permanently on Friday.

The agency’s Bush Protective Division issued one final dispatch marking the conclusion of the protective detail — and it’s giving Americans everywhere the chills.

The Secret Service sent the email, titled “Final Timberwolf Departure Notification @ 0600 Hours,” to all of its active personnel.

“Timberwolf’s Detail concluded at 0600 hours on December 7, 2018 with no incidents to report at the George Bush Presidential Library - College Station, Texas. God speed Former President George H.W. Bush - you will be missed by all of us.”

Powerful stuff.

And just like that, George H.W. Bush was no longer in need of Secret Service protection. He is now in his final resting place alongside his beloved wife, Barbara.

The White House paid tribute once again to the 41st president of the United States once George H.W. Bush was laid to rest.

"Today, America's 41st President is laid to rest in College Station, Texas," the Trump White House tweeted. "George H. W. Bush's legacy as a veteran alone would be enough to earn him our Nation’s eternal gratitude. But for President Bush, that was only the beginning of a life of service."
