HOUSTON (AP) - More than 11,000 people paid their respects to George H.W. Bush as the 41st president lay in repose all night at a Houston church where his family worshipped.
    
Some visitors waited for hours Wednesday night to pay tribute to Bush, who will be buried Thursday following a funeral at St. Martin's Episcopal Church.
    
About 1,200 mourners are expected at the service Thursday morning. Delivering a eulogy will be James Baker, Bush's former secretary of state and longtime confidant.
    
Bush's grandson George P. Bush will give the other eulogy. He is the Texas land commissioner.
    
A special train will then take Bush's casket to the campus of Texas A&M University in College Station, where Bush will be buried at his presidential library next to his wife, Barbara, and their young daughter Robin, who died in 1953.
    
Bush died at his home in Houston on Friday at age 94.
