Coretta Scott King Remembered


ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia's governor has ordered flags at all state
buildings to be flown at half-staff, following the death of Coretta
Scott King.

The governor has also offered to allow King to lie at the Capitol. There's been no immediate response to the offer.

Martin Luther King's widow died overnight. She was 78. Her sister says she passed away at a holistic health center in Mexico.

Former Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young says King's fortitude rivaled
that of her husband. He says"She was strong if not stronger than
he was."

The Reverend Jesse Jackson says "her legacy is secure as a
freedom fighter, but her work remains unfinished."

King had suffered a serious stroke and heart attack last August.
