The Grand Rapids MI NBC Affiliate reports on the funeral plans for Michigan’s favorite son, President Gerald Ford.
After honors in California and Washington D.C., the body will lie in state at the library and a private service in a church five miles away will follow. Then Ford’s body will be brought back to the museum for the private internment, and then to a grassy area beyond iron gates. The burial area lies north, on the more peaceful side of the museum. 24 Hour News 8 has been told President Ford selected this location himself.
As the agenda for the memorial spans the entire country and nearly a weeks time, here’s a schedule.
