Bush was a man people looked up to as a role model, World War II Naval aviator, an oil pioneer and much more. In his neighborhood, people knew him as a husband, a good neighbor, and a kind citizen.

The community has been laying tokens of love outside the home and cherishing their memories of Bush. 

As they leave mementos they are reflecting on Bush's impact, and how inseparable the former President and first lady were.

"When you see the fierce love that the two of them had--we as Americans regardless of what party you can see this love affair that lasted for decades, and I think that's what touches us the most," said neighbor Amanda Goss.

The former first lady died in April. Neighbors here say they feel comforted that the two are together again.
