AUSTIN — A condolence book sits on a podium in the lobby of the LBJ Presidential Library.

“President Johnson once said, 'you will find meaning only by sharing in the responsibilities, the dangers, and passions of your time.' President George HW Bush did just that," read one entry.

Visitors stopped by on Tuesday to write kind words remembering the 41st president.

"I said he was a leader among men, and I thanked him for his service because how many people can truly lead a country through war and other disparaging times," said one visitor, who called President George H.W. Bush an "impressive man."

The book will be sent to the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station.
