The service starts at 2:00 PM and should last approximately one hour. At the conclusion of the service, a lengthy motorcade will leave Reed Arena, travel south to George Bush Drive and continue eastbound on George Bush Drive to Texas Avenue. The motorcade will continue south on Texas Avenue and conclude at Memorial Funeral Home (2901 Texas Avenue South). It is very possible that this motorcade will delay traffic along this route for at least 2 hours.
