ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: The casket of former U.S. First Lady Nancy Reagan was carried from a Santa Monica, California funeral home on Wednesday (March 09). Following a small ceremony for friends and family, eight Secret Service agents, who had served the Reagans, acted as pallbearers and carried her coffin from the Little Chapel of the Dawn, placing it in a hearse bound for the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California. The hearse and accompanying motorcade made its way through streets and highways, which had been closed for the procession. Once at the Reagan Library, she will lie in repose Wednesday and Thursday (March 10) for public viewing, before a funeral service scheduled for Friday (March 11). She will then be buried on the library grounds, next to the body of her husband, U.S. President Ronald Reagan. Nancy Reagan died on Sunday (March 06) from congestive heart failure. She was 94.
