Edward M. Kennedy died of brain cancer at age 77 on late Tuesday at home in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts.
Below are the full arrangements for his funeral services:
The official funeral services for Senator Edward M. Kennedy will begin on Thursday afternoon.
On Thursday morning, Kennedy's family will travel by motorcade with his body from their compound on Cape Cod, Mass., to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston.
His body will lie in repose there for public viewing on Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
On Friday, there will be a memorial service from 7 to 9 p.m. at the library that is closed to the public where Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Senators John Kerry and John McCain will speak at the service.
On Saturday morning, a funeral mass will be said at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Basilica in Boston.
President Obama is expected to speak at the Mass, according to the New York Times.
Afterward, Mr. Kennedy’s body will be carried by plane to Washington, and then taken to Arlington National Cemetery, where a burial ceremony is to take place at 5 p.m.
Edward Kennedy will be buried approximately 95 feet south of Robert's grave, NBC News reported.
Senator Kennedy spent more days than most at Arlington visiting the graves of his beloved brothers and paying tribute to the fallen men and women of Massachusetts who gave their lives for our country, the family said in a statement.
In a separate tribute, Mr. Obama has ordered that flags fly at half-staff until sunset Sunday on federal buildings and at the White House in memory of Mr. Kennedy.
