Police are closing the road where the funeral home is located Monday and setting up detours in anticipation traffic problems. Mourners will shuttled by bus from a local middle school.
Hundreds of people, many carrying small flags, lined Main Street on Friday as the hearse carrying Doyon’s body arrived from Bradley International Airport.
Doyon graduated from Cathedral High School in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 2009.
