COURT HEARING AND PROVIDE EVIDENCE OF THE DOG’S BREED.>>Evrod: IT IS 6:39. LATER THIS MORNING, HUNDREDS OF FANS WILL BE LINING UP TO SAY THEIR FINAL GOOD-BYES TO MR. HOCKEY.>>Rhonda: CERTAINLY ARE. VISITATION WILL BE HELD FOR THE RED WING GREAT GORDIE HOWE, WHO INVIGORATED OUR CITY AND OUR HOCKEY TEAM.>>Evrod: OUR NICK MONACELLI IS JOINING US LIVE FROM JOE LOUIS ARENA WHERE THE VISITATION IS GONNA BE HELD. AND NICK, EVERYONE IS ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND AND PAY THEIR FINAL RESPECTS.>>Nick: A PART OF THE REASON THEY’RE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND TODAY’S VISITATION IS BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH TOMORROW’S FUNERAL IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, SO MANY PEOPLE EXPECTED TO COME THAT MANY PEOPLE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET IN. SO WE’RE LIVE HERE AT THE GORDIE HOWE ENTRANCE TO JOE LOUIS ARENA. AND THERE’S STILL A SMALL MEMORIAL SET UP ON THE STEPS TO JOE LOUIS ARENA IN FRONT OF GORDIE HOWE’S NAME. THEY WILL COME IN THROUGH THE WEST ENTRANCE OF THE JOE, RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER FROM THIS ENTRANCE. NOW, THE VISITATION WILL BE FROM 9:00 TODAY UNTIL 9:00 AT NIGHT AND PAYING HOMAGE TO HIS NUMBER. THE HOWE FAMILY WILL BE HERE TO GREET THE PUBLIC. PARKING IS AVAILABLE IN THE RIVERFRONT EXECUTIVE LOT DIRECTLY WEST OF THE ARENA OR IN THE JOE LOUIS GARAGE, 900 WEST JEFFERSON. THE FUNERAL WILL BE AT 11:00 IN THE MORNING AT THE CATHEDRAL OF THE MOST BLESSED SACRAMENT. AND IT’S OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. AFTER HIS DEATH, I TALKED TO KEN HOLLAND, THE TEAM’S GM AND ANDREW MILLER AND WHY HE WAS MORE THAN JUST HOCKEY.>>JUST THE WAY HE WAS, HE WAS AN INCREDIBLE AMBASSADOR. HE LOVED PEOPLE.>>EVERYONE LOOKED SO MUCH UP TO HIM. HE WAS DOWN TO EARTH AND THAT’S SOMETHING YOU APPRECIATE. YOU WANT TO BE LIKE THAT. YOU WANT TO BE A PRO ATHLETE BUT BE DOWN TO EARTH AND A REAL PERSON.>>Nick: WE JUST TALKED TO A COUPLE MEMBERS OF THE DETROIT RED WINGS ORGANIZATION AND THEY SAY HE WILL BE BROUGHT HERE WITH THE HEARSE AND UNLOADED BY HIS GRANDSON AND OTHER MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY. THEY’LL HAVE A PRIVATE SMALL CEREMONY INSIDE THE JOE AT ABOUT 8:30 AND WILL OPEN THE DOORS AT 9:00 IN THE MORNING TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC.
