Gov. Edwin Edwards died earlier this week. Edwards was nearing his 94th birthday when he died Monday.
A visitation was held Saturday at the Louisiana State Capitol Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Edwards body lied in state there as people paid their respects.
At noon Sunday, the body of Gov. Edwards will be carried on a horse-drawn funeral cortege from the State Capitol, down 4th Street to North Boulevard to the Old State Capitol where a private, in-person funeral service will be held. Hundreds of Edwards' family, friends and politicos are expected.
The family made a late decision Saturday to close the funeral to television cameras, keeping it a private, intimate event. The funeral will not be televised, the Edwards family said. Watch WBRZ News 2 at 5:30 and 10:00 Sunday for coverage of the funeral procession between the capitol buildings.
