USA Today: Former first lady Barbara Bush dies at age 92 — " 'I am still old and still in love with the man I married 72 years ago,' the former first lady wrote in a note published this month in Smith College’s alumnae magazine, still showing her characteristic humor. 'I have had great medical care and more operations than you would believe. I’m not sure God will recognize me; I have so many new body parts!'"
