Trump has ordered the federal government closed Wednesday for a national day of mourning.
Family and friends of former President George H.W. Bush are gathering Wednesday at Washington National Cathedral for a memorial service.
The 41st President of the United States died on November 30, 2018.
"I do know from the Bush family that they are very appreciative and think the White House has just bent over backwards, gone to great lengths, been extraordinarily helpful", Gangel continued.
Sully will reportedly be traveling with the former President's casket on his flight to Washington, D.C. on Monday.

'Mission complete': Sully the service dog to accompany Bush one last time
The body of the one-term Republican president will lie in state at the Rotunda through Wednesday, when a state funeral is scheduled at the Washington National Cathedral.
"This will be about the celebration of the noble public service that George H.W. Bush gave".
Bush introduced Sully in June by releasing a photo of himself sitting with the yellow Labrador and a special guest, former president Bill Clinton. Dole also served in the war. One of 41's last wishes was for Sully to continue to serve.
He was 94 years old.
"He embodied the characteristics we admire in a president: integrity, civility, dignity, humility", Schumer said during his speech.
Side by side, Democratic and Republican leaders laid floral red, white and blue wreaths around the casket of Bush, the 32nd American and the 12th president to lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda.
Bush's son George W. Bush, who became president eight years after his father left office, will be among those delivering eulogies at the funeral. Flags on public buildings are flying at half-staff for 30 days out of respect for Bush.
