The Tyler Police and Fire Department are asking for the public's respect and patience Thursday as several streets and intersections will be closed for Marty and Jean Lawrence's funeral procession.

The Tyler Police Department and Fire Department will be directing traffic along the route due to the unusually high number of people expected to attend the service and final internment.

Following the funeral service for Marty and Jean Lawrence, friends and the public safety community, will leave Green Acres Baptist Church about 12:30 p.m. for the Flint Cemetery.

The procession will travel south on Troup Highway to Grande Boulevard.

It will then go west on Grande Boulevard to Old Jacksonville Highway, where the procession will head south to Flint Cemetery.
