Statement by President George W. Bush on C. Boyden Gray

DALLAS, TEXAS – Laura and I are saddened that Boyden Gray has passed away. Boyden was a fine southern gentleman who navigated the world with intelligence, charm, and a sense of humor. He was a dedicated and talented public servant. My dad considered him a valuable advisor, and he was an excellent Ambassador during my Administration. The entire Bush family is grateful for his friendship, and we send our condolences to his dear daughter, Eliza.
