Today, I reflect upon and celebrate the life of Barbara Bush – our former First Lady. Mrs. Bush lived a life of service to others, and deeply instilled those values in her family and in the American consciousness. She was a role model who positively impacted millions of lives, including my own.
I am exceptionally privileged to have known Barbara Bush for the last 20 years. She welcomed us to Kennebunkport each fall, and made us feel immediately at home. She was incredibly modest, gracious, sharp witted, loving and giving. At IBM, we share Barbara Bush’s values – including service as part of a life well lived.
Barbara, we thank you for your countless contributions to changing the world and making it a better place. We send our prayers and best wishes to your husband and family.
