May_she_rest_in_peace The funeral for Spree Desha, the LAPD officer killed in last week's terrible Metrolink crash, will be held  at 9:30 a.m. Thursday at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in downtown Los Angeles, after a funeral procession from Parker Center. An Honors Ceremony will be held at the catherdral after the service.

The following streets will be closed:

Temple Street between Alameda Street & Grand Avenue

Hill Street between 1st and 3rd streets

Judge John Aiso Street between Temple and 1st

Though you'll be allowed to cross Temple at Los Angeles, Main and Spring streets and at Broadway until 8 a.m., it'll be heavy going. Those are Desha's parents in the photo.
