Remembering Barbara Bush

In 1991 we opened Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. First Lady Barbara Bush was a featured guest as part of the inaugural celebration. During Mrs. Bush’s visit she had the opportunity to spend some time with patients. According to an article published in the Stanford Daily the First Lady received some questions from the patients that made her laugh.
