SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) - Nancy Reagan will be buried alongside her husband on a Southern California hilltop.

Former President George W. Bush, Michelle Obama and three former first ladies, and a long list of other celebrities and dignitaries are set to attend Friday's funeral at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley.

Ronald Reagan's Chief of Staff James A. Baker, newsman Tom Brokaw and Nancy Reagan's two children are set to speak at the ceremony.

Current first lady Michelle Obama plans to be in attendance at the funeral, as do former first ladies Rosalynn Carter, Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush.

The ceremony comes after two days of public viewing at the library, and sunny skies could give way to clouds and possibly rain before the proceedings are done.
