    President Nixon Funeral

    Former presidents, congressional leaders, family and friends gathered
    to honor the 37th president. Those eulogizing the former president
    included former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Senate Minority
    Leader Robert Dole, California Governor Pete Wilson, and President
    Bill Clinton. Longtime family friend Minister Billy Graham presided
    over the ceremony. The former president had a stroke on Tuesday,
    April 19, 1994 and died three days later.

    The president asked that his body not lie in State in the U.S.
    Capital Rotunda. Instead, mourners filed by the casket in the Nixon
    Library adjacent to his childhood home of Yorba Linda, CA. He was
    buried on the grounds of the library next to the grave of his wife
    Pat who died earlier this year. The ceremony was replete with full
    military honors.
