Dozens of people are lined up to honor the late John Dingell, the longest-serving member of Congress, whose flag-covered casket is at a performing arts center in suburban Detroit.
Dingell died last Thursday at age 92. His wife, Rep. Debbie Dingell, greeted mourners Monday as they viewed the casket in Dearborn. Before the public viewing, Debbie Dingell spent time in the room with former Rep. Candice Miller and Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel.
Funerals will be held Tuesday in Dearborn and Thursday in Washington before Dingell is laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery. Dingell was in Congress for 59 years before he retired in 2014. His father was also a House member, and Dingell's wife succeeded him in Congress.
