Tuesday afternoon Massachusetts residents began climbing Beacon Hill to pay their respects to former mayor Kevin White. White died Friday at the age of 82, after battling Alzheimer's disease for a decade. White's public wake is being held at the Parkman House, across from the State House and just down the road from Boston City Hall, where White occupied the Mayor's office from 1968 to 1984.
