VIDEO: George W. Bush's eulogy for his dad

I don't know about you, but the one thing I wanted to see of George H W Bush's funeral was his son's eulogy. I can't imagine the bond they had.. not only as father and son, but as two former presidents... a job that I don't think anyone except those who hold that title could ever comprehend. 

He kept it mostly humorous, with those typical Bush smirks, talking about how his dad lived up to the saying of "dying young, as late as possible" as he jumped out of a plane at the age of 90. 

You should watch the whole thing below, but a few of my favorite parts: 

"He was born with two settings: full throttle, then sleep."

About the final call he made when he found out his dad had minutes to live: "'Dad I love you and you've been a wonderful father,'.. and the last words he ever said on Earth were, 'I love you too.'"

"To us he was close to perfect, but not totally perfect. … The man couldn’t stomach vegetables, especially broccoli,” Bush said, in a reference to the food famously loathed by his father. “And, by the way, he passed these genetic defects on to us.”

"What do we want the people we worked with to say about us? That we were more driven than anyone around us... that we stopped and asked if a sick child had gotten better.."

Also, keep an eye out for the look that I assume he gave Trump about what his dad taught him about being a President, around the 10:40 mark.
