COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX)- Texas A&M says the private, graveside service for George H.W. Bush's family has ended and the former president has been buried.

Thursday evening's ceremony concludes days of funeral activities honoring the 41st president.

After lying in state at the U.S. Capitol and a funeral at Washington's National Cathedral, Bush had a funeral at a Houston church. His remains then rode on a funeral train to College Station, where he was buried at his presidential library at Texas A&M University.

He is now laid to rest alongside his wife, Barbara Bush, and their daughter Robin, who died at age 3 of leukemia in 1953.

President Bush died last week at age 94.

Nearly 1,200 people attended a funeral service for him earlier Thursday in Houston before his body was transported by a special funeral train to College Station, where the presidential library is located on the grounds of Texas A&M University.

Large crowds lined the roughly 70-mile train route to pay tribute to Bush.
