Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi has offered her condolences following the death of former United States president George HW Bush, who passed away on Friday at the age of 94. US President Donald Trump, who plans to attend the funeral with first lady Melania Trump, also designated Wednesday as a national day of mourning, and ordered the lowering of the American flag for 30 days, Reutersreported.

On Wednesday, family and friends will gather at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC, for an 11 a.m. ET memorial service. From there, a funeral train transports Bush to Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, the site of the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, where he will be laid to rest.

Specific times and more details for Bush's funeral and memorial services will be announced at a later time, according to a statement released by Bush's spokesman, Jim McGrath. Texas A-and-M says that Bush will be buried alongside his wife Barbara and his daughter Robin in his family plot.

To honor the former president, the worldwide nonprofit Points of Light, founded by Bush, invited the public to celebrate Bush by giving a day of service in his memory.
