Nation's Capital Bids Reagan a Somber Farewell
Friday, Jun. 11, 2004; 5:16 PM

On a drizzly Friday morning, hundreds of D.C. residents and supporters gathered in the streets near the Capitol and outside the National Cathedral for a final salute to Ronald Reagan, the 40th president of the United States.

The cortege, which left the Capitol Rotunda this morning, made its way to the Cathedral for a state funeral service. Among the eulogizers was President Bush. The coffin was then escorted by motorcade to Andrews Air Force Base for its trip to California for a sunset burial.

Interviews in order of appearance:
Nancy Vause, Frederick, Md., resident
Waldo Blake, Silver Spring, Md., resident
Nelly Guacheta, D.C. resident
Polash Chowdhury, D.C. resident
Donald Kursch, D.C. resident
