Not many of us have a personal memory of Bar­bara Bush and her hus­band George H.W. Bush like the Froiland family does. In June 1992, Dick and Mary Froiland, their daughter Barbara and Bob Johnson and family, had the privilege of spending time with the 41st Presi­dent of the United States and his wife Barbara, when they vacationed in Washington, D.C.
Mary Froiland’s cousin Mary McClure worked with President Bush. She met with him once a week and had his daily agenda.
