"I will miss him desperately but so happy he and my Grandmother are back together," Bush's granddaughter Jenna writes.
The Bush family, politicians and celebrities alike have paid tribute to George H.W. Bush following his death.
Bush, who was the longest living president in history, passed away Friday night at the age of 94. The politician's death, whose career spanned over three decades, comes seven months after the passing of his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush.
"Waking up missing this giant of a man who gave me everything," Jenna captioned a series of photos of her and her twin sister Laura with Bush. "He taught me and my family about service, family, decency, the power of gentle words and a beautiful heart. I will miss him desperately but so happy he and my Grandmother are back together."
"The View" co-host Meghan McCain tweeted, "I am incredibly saddened by the passing of President George H Bush. A member of the greatest generation and a real hero in his right. A true friend to the entire McCain family. We are all sending so much love, strength and prayers to the entire Bush family - God bless you all."
It wasn't just Republicans who posted tributes to the late politician, as vocal liberal celebrities including Ellen DeGeneres, Andy Cohen and more also took to their social media accounts to pay their respects.
"I will never forget George H.W. Bush and President Clinton meeting me in my old hometown of New Orleans to show support and raise money after Hurricane Katrina," Ellen wrote. "I send my love to his family tonight."
Cohen posted a photo of Bush and Barbara to his Instagram with the caption, "#RIP."

Did you also use the cover of George H.W. Bush’s passing to have an “on the feet” meeting with Putin? https://t.co/MwTb49kmyf
My grandfather was the greatest man I ever knew. His life spanned the American Century—he fought in World War II ... took part in the Texas oil boom ... served out a distinguished career in public service including serving as president during the final days of the Cold War. pic.twitter.com/6i68EPVC3j— George P.

The passing of a president, even one you may not have voted for, is always nostalgic. When I was younger and working in news I was invited to a White House dinner. I bought a #NicoleMiller cocktail dress. My first big fashion purchase. The dinner was beautifully appointed. I sat between Marilyn Quayle and Gary Morris who was the entertainment that night. President Bush and his wife were gracious hosts. After dinner I went over to the President and asked if he would please sign my menu. My date was mortified but I was 24 and didn't know better. I'll never forget his laugh, he said no one had asked him to sign a WH menu. He asked the marine guy who shadows him for a pen. I still have that menu framed in my Box of Special Things. #41 #georgebush RIP 🙏
