In observance of the National Day of Mourning in honor of former President George H. W. Bush, all offices and departments in Galveston County will be closed Wednesday.

Gov. Greg Abbott signed an official proclamation honoring Bush's life and work, and declared an Official Day of Mourning in the State of Texas.

The governor has ordered the closure of state offices to allow employees to attend memorial services and pay respects.
