Rosalynn Carter’s Private Funeral Service

Rosalynn Carter’s private funeral on Wednesday included a special nod to the late first lady’s love of Hawaii, as family members arrived wearing traditional leis around their necks. The Carter Center told PEOPLE that the leis came from a couple who are “close friends of the Carters and who live in Hawaii.” The couple offered to ship leis out to Georgia for the ceremony. Former President Jimmy Carter, 99, wore a lei of red flowers for the occasion, while other family members, including the Carter children, wore brightly colored leis as well.
