Late president George Herbert Walker Bush's granddaughter, Jenna Bush, shared a heartfelt tribute for her beloved grandfather on Instagram as she posted joyful pictures of herself with Bush senior. America's 41st president passed away at the age of 94 on November 30 at his home in Houston, Texas. He was surrounded by family and friends during his last moments. Jenna posted the moving picture on Instagram on Saturday morning, with the caption: "Waking up missing this giant of a man who gave me everything."

"He taught me and my family about service, family, decency, the power of gentle words and a beautiful heart. I will miss him desperately but so happy he and my Grandmother are back together," she added.

One of the pictures shows 37-year-old Jenna and her twin Barbara grinning along with their grandfather, while the second picture shows a young Jenna standing beside her cousins saluting a Christmas tree as Bush senior, then president, smiles with them.

Jenna also shared another post on Instagram about a touching comic published on Saturday morning which showed Bush senior arriving in heaven with a WWII fighter jet and being welcomed by his late wife of 73 years Barbara and their three-year-old daughter they lost to leukemia in 1953. A speech bubble above Barbara said: "We waited for you." Former First Lady Barbara Bush passed away eight months before Bush senior's demise. 

Jenna captioned the comic with: "This brought me such comfort this morning. I had the opportunity to talk with my grandpa about the afterlife. This is what he said: He answered without any hesitation. "Yes, I think about it. I used to be afraid. I used to be scared of dying. I used to worry about death. But now in some ways I look forward to it."' 

"And I started crying. I managed to choke out, "Well, why? What do you look forward to?" And he said, "Well, when I die I'm going to be reunited with these people that I've lost." And I asked who he hoped to see, he replied, 'I hope I see Robin, and I hope I see [Barbara]. I haven't yet figured out if it will be Robin as the three-year-old that she was this kind of chubby, vivacious child or if she'll come as a middle-aged woman, an older woman," Jenna continued.

"And then he said, "I hope she's the three-year-old." Robin was the daughter he lost years before to leukemia. The little girl he held tightly, who spoke the phrase I have heard Gampy repeat for my entire life, forever knitting Robin's voice into the tightly woven fabric of our family: "I love you more than tongue can tell,"' the caption read.

Although Bush senior's cause of death was not announced, he suffered from a form a Parkison's disease and had been hospitalized multiple times for pneumonia and other infections in recent years.
