The public is paying its respects to President Gerald Ford in Grand Rapids, Mich., the city he grew up in and then represented in Congress for many years. His body lies in repose there before a private funeral at the church where he and Betty Ford were married and burial at his presidential museum.

Kaomi Goetz of Michigan Radio reports.
