Family, admirers prepare to lay Jesse Helms to rest
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Jesse Helms' family prepared Tuesday to lay the five-term U.S. senator to rest, gathering with a group of mourners that was expected to include national figures and home-state admirers.
Helms, 86, died July 4 after years of declining health. The funeral will be held at Hayes-Barton Baptist Church in Raleigh, where Helms worshipped for decades and was a deacon.
If you were going to look at three things that are important from the family perspective, it would be his family, his faith and his flag. That was the cornerstone of who Uncle Jesse was," said nephew Paul Coble, a Wake County commissioner and former Raleigh mayor.
Vice President Dick Cheney planned to attend the funeral, according to Cheney spokeswoman Megan Mitchell. A delegation of U.S. senators also planned to attend, along with state political figures and average admirers of the conservative Republican icon, who inspired both love and disdain for his strong views.
In memory of my brother Michael, who gave me my love of sports. I will miss you!
