06-9-04 - (Simi Valley, California-AP) Preparations are under way to take former President Reagan's casket on a cross-country journey. A black Cadillac hearse arrived at the Reagan library in Simi Valley, California, where the former president's body has been lying in repose. A second hearse was brought in as a spare.
Reagan's family will escort his body from the library to a nearby Navy base for a flight to Andrews Air Force Base outside Washington. A procession Wednesday evening will carry the body into the Rotunda of the US Capitol building, where it will lie in state until Friday's funeral service.
President Bush is expected to go to the Capitol sometime Thursday evening to view the casket. He and the first lady also plan to call on Nancy Reagan, who'll be staying at the official guest residence near the White House.
