St. Petersburg, Florida - After the services at First Baptist Indian Rocks Church, Congressman C.W. Bill Young's body was taken to Bay Pines National Cemetery.
While there, dozens of family members and a few close friends were allowed to attend the private services.
Before the burial, there was a gun salute; a bugle call and then a fly-over by three Blackhawk helicopters.

"He's helped every veteran on this planet with his heart and soul. He's a god and he's the best of the best of the best and we're going to miss him a lot," said Ray Smith, a Young family friend who attended the service.
