The funeral of Abdelbaset al-Megrahi will take place later today in Tripoli's main cemetry, according to a Libyan news agency.
The funeral was initially expected to take place on the day of Megrahi's death, in line with Islamic tradition, but was put off to allow relatives to come from Sebha, his hometown in the South of the country.
Jim Swire, whose daughter Flora was killed in the bombing, maintains there is evidence yet to be released that will prove Megrahi's innocence. Dr Swire said he was "very glad that the last part of his life was led with his family back in his own society in Tripoli".
Jean Berkley, whose son Alistair died in the atrocity, said Megrahi's death would not change her determination to see a full public inquiry.
I would say our focus has never been on Megrahi, he is part of a much larger picture. His death does not change anything and we still want an inquiry. There are still all these unanswered questions and his death doesn't change that.
American Eileen Monetti, who lost her 20-year-old son Rick in the bombing, said she could not celebrate Megrahi's death.
He now has to face his God and deal with judgment whatever it is. I'm in no position to judge but I do feel that it isn't going to change my life that much, I mean he already did a lot of changing to my life.
I was surprised, but I'm not jumping up and down, I don't celebrate any death. I was very angry when he was released back to Libya and campaigns against his conviction grew.
Certainly campaigns for his innocence have added to the stress that families have been under already.
