LITTLE ROCK, AR - At least 1,500 people are expected to attend a church service Thursday at Pulaski Heights Methodist Church in Little Rock for Lieutenant Governor Win Rockefeller.

The church is preparing the sanctuary and three overflow sites for mourners.  The sites will have closed-circuit television to allow attendants to observe the service.  A shuttle also will be available to pick up people at War Memorial Stadium and Ray Winder Field for transportation to and from the church.

Doors will be open at 11:15 for the 1 p.m. service.  Rockefeller, who was a member of the church, died Sunday of a blood disorder.
