WASHINGTON (AP) The public viewing for late former President George H.W. Bush at the Capitol Rotunda has drawn to a close.

A funeral service at Washington National Cathedral on Wednesday will cap three days of remembrance by dignitaries and ordinary citizens as they honor Bush, who died in Houston last week at age 94.

Current and former occupants of the Oval Office are coming together for the state funeral.

It will be attended by ex-Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter and by President Donald Trump.

Following the service, the former President's remains will be returned to Houston to lie in repose before burial Thursday at his family plot on the presidential library grounds at Texas A&M University in College Station.
