UNIVERSITY PARK - The two days of public viewing for Joe Paterno has come to an end as Paterno's family prepares for his funeral today.  An estimated 27,000 people stood in line at the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center at Penn State for a chance to pay their respects to the legendary coach.  One-by-one, each walked past Paterno's casket and stopped to mourn the coach.   The family funeral is private this afternoon, to be followed by a procession through campus this afternoon and the coach's burial later today.
