The service took place at Georgia's Capitol rotunda where Miller's body has been lying in state since Tuesday's celebration of life ceremony in Buckhead. 

Miller died Friday in his old family home in the north Georgia mountain town of Young Harris. He was 86.

He served his two terms as Georgia governor from 1991 until 1999 and was appointed to the Senate in 2000.

Miller was honored Monday at a service in Young Harris, where he was remembered for a long political career that began at city hall.

Three former presidents - Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush - spoke at the service Tuesday at Peachtree Road United Methodist Church in Atlanta.

After Wednesday's service, Miller's body was taken to a funeral home in Cumming, Georgia, north of Atlanta.
