31. SOUNDBITE (English) Dick Cheney, US Vice President:
"Knowing that this moment would come, has not made it any easier. To see the honour guard and the flag-draped before us and to begin America's farewell to President Ronald Reagan. He said goodbye to us in a letter that showed great courage and love for America. Yet for his friends and for his country the parting comes only now and in this national vigil of mourning we show how much America loved this good man and how greatly we will miss him."

With a riderless horse symbolising the fallen president, Ronald Reagan's casket arrived at the US Capitol on Wednesday, where it will lie in state ahead of Friday's state funeral.
People stood by in their thousands as the funeral procession moved along Constitution Avenue, many having waited hours in the steamy heat to pay their last respects.
Reagan's widow Nancy headed the procession, waving repeatedly to the crowds, but looking wan.
Reagan's funeral procession was formed within view of the South Lawn of the White House.
Following a long tradition, rarely seen, the body of the former president, who was an avid horseman, was carried on a black caisson drawn by six horses.
The artillery carriage was built in 1918 to carry provisions and ammunition.
Behind that trailed Sergeant York, the horse with an empty saddle and boots reversed in the stirrups to symbolise a warrior who will ride no more and looks back a final time on his troops.
Overhead - only 1,000 feet overhead - 21 fighter jets screamed by in four formations, a wingman breaking away and rocketing upward to signify the loss of a comrade.
In her husband's death as in his life, Nancy Reagan was beside him at every step.
When his casket reached the landing of the Capitol, she reached out and touched it.
The United States' 40th president lay in state under a dome where public servants from Abraham Lincoln forward have been honoured.
U-S Vice President Dick Cheney, speaking at the state funeral ceremony opening the 34-hour period of Reagan's lying in state, paid tribute to a graceful and gallant man.
