Former first lady Rosalynn Carter’s casket was carried out of Glenn Memorial United Methodist Church after her tribute service concluded following Pastor Tony Lowden's benediction.
“You’ve heard everything about this brave soul. You heard that she was from Plains, Georgia. You heard the fact that she loved and that she had compassion even for a butterfly,” Lowden said.
“She’s alive. She’s resting in the arms of Jesus. We ask that you comfort every person here today as her sons and daughters of the Secret Service take her back home to Plains," he added.
Former President Jimmy Carter exited the church shortly after the casket and their motorcade has departed.
Rosalynn's funeral is scheduled for Wednesday in Plains, Georgia.
