BEDFORD, N.Y. (AP) — Mourners have gathered at a modest stone church north of New York City for the funeral of Mary Richardson Kennedy.
The estranged wife of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was found dead of an apparent suicide this week at her home in Bedford.
Guests arriving for the funeral Saturday at St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church included prominent members of the Kennedy family and such celebrity friends as Larry David and Dan Aykroyd.
Mary's sister-in-law and lifelong friend, Kerry Kennedy, has told reporters gathered outside the church that she was "brilliant, and she was beautiful, and she cared so very, very deeply about everybody around her."
She says Mary Kennedy battled severe depression for years.
