Former President George H.W. Bush responded to birthday wishes Tuesday, saying he is "truly touched and overwhelmed" by the messages he's received.

"And although I have seen them all, I can no longer answer them all," he said in a statement. "My 94-year-old hands would rebel."

Bush said he is blessed with "the world's most loving family," and he feels "the love of the best friends a man ever had."

"My heart is full on the first day of my 95th year," he said.
