The casket of George H.W. Bush arrived Sunday in Washington D.C., ahead of the scheduled memorial services in the nation’s capital for the 41st president.

Bush’s longtime spokesman, Jim McGrath, tweeted a photo of the casket with the caption “Mission complete.”

Bush will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol giving the American public an opportunity to bid farewell. An arrival ceremony will be held for the former president on Monday at 5 p.m. CT. The public is invited to pay respects beginning Monday at 6:30 p.m. CT through Wednesday at 6 a.m.

Wednesday is the national day of mourning.

A plane arrived at Ellington Airport in Houston to take Bush’s body to Washington. A train will eventually take him to his final resting place in College Station with his wife Barbara, who died earlier this year, and daughter Robin, who died from leukemia as a child.
