Jenna Bush Hager, one of his granddaughters and the daughter of former President George W. Bush, shared a heartbreaking tribute to her "Gampy" on her Instagram Saturday morning.

Hager posted her tribute along with a cartoon drawn by Marshall Ramsey, the editorial cartoonist for The Clarion Ledger. The cartoon depicts her grandfather reuniting with his wife Barbara Bush and their daughter Robin.

"Waking up missing this giant of a man who gave me everything. He taught me and my family about service, family, decency, the power of gentle words and a beautiful heart. I will miss him desperately but so happy he and my Grandmother are back together," Hager wrote in a separate post.


George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush were married for 73 years until Barbara's death in April. The couple were married in New York but spent their honeymoon together in Georgia.

Their daughter Robin died of cancer when she was three years old.
