Inouye to lie in state in Capitol
Washington (CNN) - The late Sen. Daniel Inouye, who was the second-longest serving member of Senate, will lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda on Thursday, his office said.
The high honor is one reserved for presidents and other significant civic figures.
There will be a ceremony and hours for visitation in the rotunda on Thursday, Inouye's office said.
A service will be held at the National Cathedral on Friday, and his final memorial service will be held on Sunday at Hawaii's National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Among those buried in that cemetery are 32 other Medal of Honor recipients and at least one former senator.
Only 11 people who were serving or had served as U.S. senators have lain in state in the rotunda, according to records from the architect of the Capitol. Three of those had served as president.

1. A great, great man
Seems he was loved by everybody.
Even the creepy-freepies are holding memorials for him. If even those freaks can honor him, a democrat, that says a lot.
