The family has requested that that they not be solicited for interviews during or following the funeral and interment.

During the funeral service, no media coverage will be allowed inside the church. An exterior media location will be set up to facilitate media coverage without intruding on the solemn ceremony. As parking may be limited, media representatives are advised to arrive early and use the parking lot across the street from the church.

The family has specifically requested that all military members and media representatives leave the National Military Cemetery following the interment, allowing the family a last moment of privacy.
