Thousands Expected to Pay Respects to Stevens

Tuesday, 17 Aug 2010 06:57 PM

 

Alaskans are saying their last good-byes to former U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens, who was killed in a plane crash.

A steady stream of mourners is filing past a closed casket as Stevens' body lies in repose at All Saints Episcopal Church in Anchorage. Tuesday's daylong procession will be followed by funeral services Wednesday at the Anchorage Baptist Temple.

Stevens died along with four others when their plane crashed in southwest Alaska last week. Four people survived.

Three days of remembrances for Stevens began Monday when several hundred people attended a Catholic Mass at Holy Family Cathedral in Anchorage.

Hundreds are expected to line a procession route taking Stevens' body to the Baptist church on Tuesday evening in preparation for Wednesday's funeral.
