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.
Gaddafi is dead, his regime swept away and his man, Megrahi will be buried unheralded.
David Cameron said the Lockerbie bomber "should never have been released from prison" after his family said he had died in Tripoli.
