Sargent Shriver's children and grandchildren carry Sargent Shriver's casket to the hearse taking it to the funeral in Maryland.
Cardinal Donald Wuerl of the Archdiocese of Washington was the principal celebrant and homilist.
Anthony Shriver invites the congregation to recite words spoken by Sargent Shriver during an address to Yale University in 1994: "I hope you remember to believe in things 'til you die. I hope you remember to be guided by beliefs powerful enough to change the world. I hope you remember the example of the Peace Corps volunteer, the Head Start parent, the Special Olympics athlete. They, each in their own way, are waging peace. Maybe you will even remember me and my family. Remember the importance of family--of giving and receiving--of love. You have such a chance! Oh, how I wish I were you!!!!"
After he spoke fondly of Sargent Shriver's support for his Senate campaign in 1972, Biden was thanked by Maria Shriver.
