Cronkite’s Funeral Scheduled for Thursday

And that's the way it is-

Plans were set on Saturday for a private funeral for Walter Cronkite, the pioneering CBS News anchorman who died Friday.

A service for relatives and friends will be held on Thursday at St. Bartholomew’s Church in Manhattan, a CBS spokesman confirmed. The Associated Press said “the Rev. William Tully will preside over the Episcopal service at the Park Avenue church, which the Cronkites attended for many years.”

A larger memorial is expected to take place in the next few weeks at Lincoln Center.

The Associated Press reported that Mr. Cronkite would be buried in Kansas City, Mo., next to his wife, Betsy, who died in 2005.
