Political bigwigs and close personal friends plan to eulogize William Donald Schaefer at his funeral next week.

U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski, former NAACP President Kweisi Mfume and long-time aide Lainy Lebow-Sachs -- who held Schaefer's hand as he died -- are scheduled to eulogize the former Baltimore mayor and Maryland governor at his April 27 funeral.

Longtime friend and state schools superintendent Nancy Grasmick, former chief of staff Mark Wasserman and Ron Rogers, who lived in the same retirement community as Schaefer, plan to read Scriptures.

Schaefer's body will lie in repose at the State House Monday and at Baltimore's City Hall Tuesday. His funeral will be held at Old St. Paul's Church in Baltimore, followed by a burial at Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens in Timonium.
