Former President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday that Barbara Bush, who died at age 92, "touched the hearts of millions with her warmth, generosity, and keen wit."
"Rosalynn and I are saddened by the death of Barbara Bush," Carter and his wife said in a statement. "She touched the hearts of millions with her warmth, generosity, and keen wit.
"The matriarch of a family dedicated to serving, she urged volunteerism as a way for all citizens to participate in our nation's progress.
"Through her own work to promote literacy as a value in every American home, countless families now have the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in all aspects of their lives," the Carters said.
"She will be missed."
