11: "...there was little sleep that night and when I joined Mrs. Roosevelt and the Misses Suckley and Delano in the morning.But as before,Mrs. Roosevelt was strong and calm, her grief so contained that it helped to hold us all. A funeral cortege had been formed at the Little White House with the four of us riding in the car immediately following the hearse. Lines of marines were drawn up along the way from the cottage to Georgia Hall, the route which the President had always driven on his departure from Warm Springs. As the cortege drew into the drive and halted, the sad strains of an accordion played 'Going Home'. It was Graham Jackson, who had played may times for F.D.R. With tears running down both sides of his face, he stood in front of the group and paid his last homage. And as the cars started again slowly, driving around the semicircular drive and on toward the station, Jackson swung into one of the President's favorite hymns, 'Nearer, My God, To Thee'."
