Funeral services for Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin will be held at noon on Friday, Dec. 5, in the Tabernacle on Temple Square.

The LDS Church's satellite system will carry the funeral live, as will BYU-TV, a cable and satellite channel. It was not immediately known if local TV stations will also broadcast the service.

Regarding a replacement apostle, no timeline has been set yet. Traditionally, however, selection of a new apostle can come in a few weeks, unless church leaders decide to wait until the next general conference, which in this case would be April.
