Mayor John Tory, who gave permission for Ford to lie in repose at city hall, was first to pause quietly at his predecessor’s casket, then shake hands with relatives.

The mourners, some with children in tow, included former high school football players Ford once coached.

On Wednesday, a procession will head to nearby St. James cathedral for funeral services, followed by a private family ceremony.
