SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — Members of the public have begun paying their respects to the late former first lady Nancy Reagan.
Shuttle buses are bringing mourners to the hilltop Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, where her casket was brought earlier Wednesday by motorcade from a Los Angeles-area funeral home.
Members of the public must park at a remote location, and the shuttles are timed so that the library lobby where the casket has been placed never becomes full.
Most people stay just a few minutes, and some wipe away tears.
A local police officer and a firefighter in dress uniform form an honor guard.
After two days of public viewing, a private funeral will be held Friday.
