George H.W. Bush becomes 1st US president to turn 94

KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine—George H.W. Bush enjoyed a relaxing birthday on Tuesday as he became the first former United States president to turn 94.

The nation’s 41st president was receiving calls and taking it easy at his seaside home eight days after being released from a hospital where he was treated for low blood pressure, said Chief of Staff Jean Becker.

Bush’s office shared a letter from the president in which he said, “My heart is full on the first day of my 95th year….As many of you know, for years I have said the three most important things in life are faith, family and friends. My faith has never been stronger,” the former president wrote in the letter.
