Funeral Arrangements Set for Elizabeth Edwards
The plans for Elizabeth Edwards' funeral are now set. Her 28-year-old daughter, Cate, will deliver a eulogy.
Elizabeth's estranged husband, John Edwards will attend the final farewell to Elizabeth but he will not speak.
Mourners will hear from two of Elizabeth's close friends: Hargrave McElroy, who's Cate's godmother and regularly traveled with Elizabeth during campaigns, and Glenn Bergenfield, her old friend from law school, who appeared on The Early Show the morning after she died.
The funeral will be held at the same Methodist church in Raleigh, North Carolina where the Edwards' said goodbye to their 16-year-old son Wade in 1996, when he was killed in a car accident. Elizabeth will be laid to rest next to Wade's grave.
But there's actually a protest planned outside the funeral. A controversial church known for protesting the memorials of fallen soldiers says they'll picket because Elizabeth is "going to hell" for admitting to doubting her faith when Wade died. How could anyone think of doing such a thing at the funeral of a woman being hailed as an American hero?
