The beautiful State Funeral honoring President Ronald Wilson Reagan on June 11th, 2004 is already being compared to
that of Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy.
The stirring words spoken by World leaders, inspiring music performed by Armed Forces orchestras, and stunning visuals created
by the nation's capital and California sun will be long remembered by the tens of millions who witnessed their grandeur in person and on television.
Ronald Reagan, the Great Communicator, was welcomed to his final resting place by the most eloquent
words spoken and sounds heard in recent American political history.
Over one hundred thousand citizens waited in long lines to pass the President's casket as it lay in state under the Capital dome.
Thousands more lined the motorcade routes as he passed from sea to shining sea one last time.
This high quality audio compact disc (CD) containing the oratory, blessings, and music shared on the final day is being made available so that this historic commemoration can be replayed and remembered.
Tributes include eulogies by President George W. Bush, former President George H. W. Bush (in one of the only public ceremonies actively participated in by both father and son),
and Lady Margaret Thatcher. Also included are the touching words shared by the three surviving Reagan children and
emotional music performed by several Armed Forces ensembles including the classic Battle Hymn of the Republic, Ave Maria, and Amazing Grace.
