STONEWALL, Texas (AP) - Lady Bird Johnson has arrived at her
final resting place beneath a canopy of oak trees at the family's
ranch near Austin.

She'll be buried beside the late President Lyndon Baines Johnson.

Johnson died Wednesday at 94. Relatives and friends remembered
her as an astute businesswoman, a woman who worked to preserve
nature and the devoted wife of a president.

At the burial service her grandson Lyndon Nugent said "She always seemed to be wondering if she had done enough for the world, regardless of her own condition."

Earlier, thousands of admirers lined streets in Austin and roads in the Hill Country to watch her procession drive by. Her hearse was adorned with a cluster of little orange wildflowers. Johnson's daughters and their families followed in two limousines and waved
to the crowd.
