Hong/AP The body of the late Nancy Reagan was transported by motorcade to the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California, where the former First Lady will lie in repose for public visitation. Police officers and firefighters saluted as the hearse drove past on the Ronald Reagan Highway in the early morning, while others gathered along the road leading to the library. The somber procession followed a private ceremony earlier Wednesday at a funeral home in Santa Monica. Secret Service agents served as pallbearers for Reagan. The public can pay their respects to Reagan, who died in her sleep at 94 on Sunday, starting Wednesday afternoon and into Thursday. A closed-casket funeral service will then be held at 11 a.m. on Friday for the Reagan family. Reagan will be laid to rest next to husband, former President Ronald Reagan, at the library. Around 1,000 guests are invited to the funeral, including First Lady Michelle Obama, as well as former presidents and other former first ladies.
