George H.W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States, died Nov. 30. Readers honored his legacy.

SADDENED: I am saddened to hear of the passing of the 41st President of the United States, George H.W. Bush. He was a man of honor and courage, and he cared deeply for his family and his country. May he rest in peace.

INTEGRITY: Very sad. He was a man of integrity. It is a shame that is lacking within the Republican Party now.

REST IN PEACE: He was the last of the real Republicans. Rest in peace, President Bush.

APPRECIATION: We so appreciate George H.W. Bush’s service. Not only as president of our great country, but for serving in the Navy during the Second World War.

Locals praised the recent Christmas celebrations in Cambridge.

FUN: From singing at the Crab Basket Tree with the Cambridge-South Dorchester High School chorus to a fun bus ride with Senator Addie Eckardt and other local dignitaries, to marching with the C-SD Band. It was so much fun! I’m feeling much more Christmasy!

SPIRIT: Christmas celebration in Cambridge — the tree is lit, the trains are running and the boats were on time — not to mention the Christmas Spirit!

ANTICIPATION: I had a great time last night. That was my first Cambridge Tree lighting event. I’m looking forward to many more.

GRATITUDE: What a great parade! Thanks to all the organizations and businesses who created such awesome floats, who marched, and who shared their talents.

ANNIVERSARY: Thanks also to all the volunteers with the parade committee for pulling it all together. It was the 70th anniversary of the parade.
