After U.S. President George H.W. Bush passed away last week at 94, Mississippi Clarion Ledger cartoonist Marshall Ramsey honored the nation's 41st chief executive with one of the most moving works of art I've seen in years.
In this cartoon, the World War II hero and former U.S. Navy pilot has flown his Grumman TBM Avenger torpedo bomber to the Pearly Gates to be reunited with his wife Barbara and daughter Robin, who died of leukemia at age 3 way back in 1953.
I wasn't alone in being moved by Ramsey's illustration. It quickly went viral, with readers calling it "beautiful" and "touching."
