HOUSTON (AP) - Barbara Bush's casket has been wheeled out of the Houston church where hundreds of people came to offer their final respects during her funeral.

Eight of her grandsons served as pallbearers. Behind them, her husband and former President George H.W. Bush followed in his wheelchair, which was pushed by their son, former President George W. Bush.

As he was pushed down the walkway in the church, George H.W. Bush shook hands with some of the people who were in the pews. In his lap, he carried his glasses and a copy of the funeral program.

Mourners sang "Joyful, joyful, we adore thee" as the family left the nation's largest episcopal church.

Burial will follow at the Bush Library in College Station, Texas.

She will be buried next to their 3-year-old daughter, Robin, who died of leukemia in 1953.
