Farewell, Nancy: Former First Lady's Body Transported to Ronald Reagan Presidential Library for Public to Pay Respects
Nancy Reagan will lie in repose for public visitation on Wednesday and Thursday
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.
Around 1,000 guests are invited to the funeral, including First Lady Michelle Obama, as well as former presidents and other former first ladies.
