(Newser) – George HW Bush was known for his colorful socks, so it's only fitting he will be buried in a special pair. Spokesman Jim McGrath tweeted the image Monday: The socks feature planes flying in formation, a nod to Bush's own history as a young Navy pilot, reports Fox News. The former president will lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda beginning Monday, and his service dog, Sully, will accompany his casket from Texas to DC. After a funeral service Wednesday in Washington, Bush's casket will go back to Texas for burial. (Bush's last words were to son George.)
