The public memorial service for slain toddler Caylee Marie Anthony will be Tuesday morning.
Brad Conway the lawyer representing Caylee's grandparents, told the Sentinel the service will be at 10 a.m. at the First Baptist Church of Orlando.
The public is invited to this service, but the Anthonys and the church do have the right to refuse entry to certain people, Conway said.First Baptist Orlando just issued a statement regarding the memorial, and said seating for the service will open at 9 a.m.

The church also said: - Use of cell phones, still photo and video cameras are not allowed inside the building. - No bags, purses or backpacks will be allowed inside the building. - Everyone who attends the service must pass through a metal detector.
Senior Pastor David Uth issued the statement:"I believe God placed First Baptist Church of Orlando here in Central Florida to make a difference in this community, and to love this community. We believe our purpose is to be a lighthouse, especially in difficult and dark times. One of those times is now as we have all been saddened by the death of Caylee Anthony.
As a church, we want to provide hope, healing and the opportunity to experience God's love. We believe that hosting the service will give us the opportunity to minister to a family in need and to a community that is hurting because of the loss of this precious child."Conway said other details will be released in the near future.
