The casket carrying the body of former U.S. President Gerald Ford has arrived in his hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan, for burial on Wednesday.
There will be more services and viewings before Mr. Ford is buried in a private ceremony on the grounds of his presidential museum in Grand Rapids.
The 38th president of the United States died last week in California at age 93.
Mr. Ford's body was flown to Grand Rapids from Washington, where dignitaries others paid tribute to him on Tuesday during a funeral at Washington's National Cathedral.
The three living former U.S. presidents - Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter - were among the three-thousand attendees.
Speaking at the funeral, President George W. Bush remembered Mr. Ford as a great man who became president during one of the most divisive times in American history. He said Mr. Ford helped restore trust in the workings of democracy, and that the world saw the best of America in him.
Mr. Ford, a Republican, assumed the presidency in 1974 after Richard Nixon resigned during the Watergate political scandal.
Former President George H.W. Bush recalled Mr. Ford's sense of humor and said his life was marked by honor and integrity.
After lying in state in the U.S. Capitol since Saturday, Mr. Ford's body was moved for the events today, a day set aside as a national day of mourning.
Mr. Ford served in Congress for 25 years before then-President Richard Nixon appointed him in 1973 to succeed Vice President Spiro Agnew, who resigned amid a scandal.
Mr. Ford became president the following year, in 1974, after Mr. Nixon resigned during the Watergate scandal. Mr. Ford lost a bid to continue in office to Democrat Jimmy Carter in 1976.
Gerald Ford is widely credited with helping the nation recover from the trauma of the Vietnam War and the Watergate scandal.
