News

President George H.W. Bush’s photographer in the White House shared an emotional account about one of the last times he saw the former president.  He also shared the funny tale of how Pres. Bush initiated him with a prank.

Valdez said his job covering the Bush family changed his life.

“Such special people, seeing how they interacted with their family in public and in private,” Valdez said about Mr. and Mrs. Bush. “I probably interact with people differently because of them,” he said as he got choked up. “And there are to be privileged to witness that and to document that. You know all of these many years later to be able to continue to share those stories. The legacy of the Bush family will certainly go on.”
