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. close
