KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine – Even in the cold and rain, people are making a point to stop and sign the visitor book at St. Ann's Episcopal Church in Kennebunkport, Maine, in the wake of President George H.W. Bush’s death at 94. 

President Bush's mother and father were married at the church. 

Since neither the church nor parsonage were prepped for winter, the church is closed this time of year. It was opened specially to allow people to pay respects to President Bush and say a prayer for the family.
