(Meredith) -- In honor of former President George H.W. Bush's funeral, the U.S. Postal Service says regular mail deliveries will be suspended on Wednesday.

The Postal Service will continue some delivery services in preparation for the holiday season.

"We will provide limited package delivery service on that day to ensure that our network remains fluid and we do not experience any impacts to our package delivery operations that might negatively affect our customers or business partners during the remainder of our busy holiday season, " the Postal Service said in a statement.
