The official schedule of memorial services for former President George H.W. Bush, who died late Friday at the age of 94, was released Saturday evening.

The stock exchange will observe a moment of silence on Monday "and plans to be closed on December 5, the national day of mourning designated by President Trump", Nasdaq spokesman Will Briganti said.

The former governor also spoke about Bush's kindness. Trump repeatedly dismissed his competitor as "low energy", and Bush was one of the first to drop out of the primary race. The 41st president passed away peacefully in his home in Houston Friday night.

The leaders of Congress from both parties say an arrival ceremony will be held for the former president on Monday at 5 p.m. EST. Trump also announced that he'll be sending one of the Boeing 747s that serves as Air Force One to Houston to transport Bush's casket to Washington, D.C.
