Rockefeller arrangements

Posted By on Mon, Jul 17, 2006 at 11:50 AM

The chairs of the state Republican (Gil Baker) and Democratic (Jason Willett) parties issued this joint statement today:

Today, Arkansas’ two major political parties will continue to respect the loss of one of Arkansas’ great consequential leaders, Win Rockefeller.   It is evident that many will want to speculate regarding who, what, when, and how Win’s replacement should be filled.  However, we believe that time has not come.  Today is not a day for politics as usual.  Today is a time for reflection and honor for a wonderful human being and his family.  Our hearts and prayers continue to be with Lisenne and the Rockefeller family in this time.

ARRANGEMENTS:

The lieutenant governor's body will lie in state at the Capitol from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday.

A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Thursday, July 20, at Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church, where he was a member. The family asks that memorials be sent to the Quapaw Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

The service is open to the public, but the church is making arrangements for overflow in the Great Hall of the Argue Christian Life Center and Wesley Hall of the Nixon Disciple Center. The church also said arrangements are being finalized for telecast of the service.
