In a darkened room at party headquarters, Michigan Republicans gathered around the television set and watched the final farewell to President Ronald Reagan.
Matt Davis, Michigan Republican Spokesperson, says they wanted people to share the moment and be able to mourn together in order to find hope faster. Melissa Knutsen watched the funeral and says she wouldn't have missed it.
People of all ages listened as former President Bush and current President Bush shared memories, stirring emotions within the room.
Looking back on the days of remembrance leading up to Friday's funeral, the ceremony seems to be a fitting end for whose legacy will live on.
