Delivering a eulogy to his estranged wife Mary, Mr Kennedy, the son of the assassinated attorney-general Robert F Kennedy and nephew of President John F Kennedy, spoke of her troubled life and admitted that she resented him for asking her to give up her career to have children.
Mary Richardson Kennedys family went to court on Friday to try to stop her being interred in a Kennedy family plot in Centerville, Massachusetts.
But the burial went ahead following a funeral service at St Patricks Church in Bedford, New York, attended by stars including the actors Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, Glenn Close, Susan Sarandon and Larry David, and the tennis champion John McEnroe.
Representatives from the Kennedy clan included Ethel Kennedy, Mr Kennedys mother and RFKs widow, Caroline Kennedy, President Kennedys daughter, and Maria Shriver, another cousin, who is married but separated from Arnold Schwarzenegger, the actor turned California governor.
In his tearful eulogy, twice-married Mr Kennedy told mourners how his troubled wife had telephoned him the day before she was found hanging from a barn in the home they once shared in upstate New York.
He said: The day before she died, she called me and said, 'You know me better than anyone in the world. She said, 'I was such a good girl. I said, 'I know you are and you still are. She really fought so hard. She had these demons, and she didnt deserve it. I know I did everything I could to help her.
Mrs Kennedys friends have suggested that she was distraught at the separation from her husband, who filed for divorce in 2010 and is now in a relationship with Cheryl Hines, the star of the television show Curb Your Enthusiasm, but had not completed the process.

people who were close to her, knew different.
In a family filled with garbage he holds a special place at the top of the heap.
When liberals came up with the term Camelot to describe the Kennedy reign, they were prescient, since the Kennedy saga would soon involve a Lady of the Lake (Mary Jo Kopechne).
....sounds like something your uncle would say....
Was he even charged? Just saying why he would say this in the first place.....Guilty conscience maybe?
Including that he .....filed for divorce in 2010 and is now in a relationship with Cheryl Hines, the star of the television show Curb Your Enthusiasm, but had not completed the process.
Helpful. Really, really helpful.
Kennedys, obamas, etc—Not one is “responsible”.
Quote. Of. The. Week.
For a moment I thought it was Teddy speaking.
What was the real story, do you know?
As an aside, it's typical Kennedy behavior to keep the parents of his discarded wife from burying their daughter as they see fit. Classy bunch.
Note that the Kennedys succeeded in burying Mrs. Kennedy in their cemetery over the objections of her family. What a classy bunch! No consideration for her family.
Was his LIVE-IN Girlfriend at the funeral also??? What a F@@@-ed up family.
But the burial went ahead following a funeral service at St Patricks Church in Bedford, New York,
She was such a mental case he had 4 kids with her. Yeah, right. What a guy.
What I hate most about the Kennedys is the sway they hold over the entire machine of the state, including the judiciary. How? Why?
In this case, the a-hole that’s divorcing her — so he is NOT her family anymore — WINS in court against her family, who don’t want her buried with the rest of the a-hole’s family. Seems like a no-brainer. Seems unconscionable to go against the wishes of her family.
But no. The court rules on the side of the Kennedy. Always. ALWAYS. And why? What does it buy this judge? The Kennedys are done. The best of them was murdered half a century ago. The rest are losers, morons, and liars. There’s nothing in it for anyone to kowtow to them anymore, so why? How do they maintain this almost hypnotic hold over the entire commonwealth of Massachusetts?
I’d really like someone from Massachusetts to explain.
I think she should have been buried where her family wished.
Typical scum of the earth liberal—it’s always the other guys fault.
And the brain dead American public worships these pukes.
The Kennedy family is a disgrace to this country from top to bottom!!
I would say because the divorce was never finalized. They were still married in the eyes of the law.
I stand with her family who, from a news source said they wanted the burial NOT with the Kennedys'. They were, after all, divorcing. I wonder what scars this will leave upon the four children (being a Kennedy not all its cracked up to be).
Not responsible? Is that the same as irresponsible?
Was she not his second wife with whom he had an affair while he was married to the first wife?
Newt was castrated by the press for lesser sins - NO SMALL CHILDREN INVOLVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No flaming from me,Friend....*this* Irish Catholic Bostonian male thinks that you're being *far* too kind.
Because "The Kennedy's" are the premier American oligarchical criminal class.
Kennedy married Emily Ruth Black (b. October 15, 1957) on April 3, 1982, in Bloomington, Indiana; she is the daughter of Thomas Black and Libby Armstrong. They have two children: Robert F. III, b. 1984, and Kathleen Alexandra, b. 1988. They divorced on March 25, 1994, in the Dominican Republic.
Kennedy subsequently married Mary Richardson (1960 May 16, 2012) on April 15, 1994, aboard a research vessel along the Hudson River. They had four children: Conor Richardson (b. 1994), Kyra LeMoyne (b. 1995), William Finbar (b. 1997), and Aiden Caohman Vieques (b. 2001). On May 12, 2010, Kennedy filed for divorce from Mary; three days later she was charged with drunken driving.
What a guy!!!!!!!!!!!!
I pray that her family takes this to the courts over and over and over again...all the while with a NY Post reporter in tow...to get a judge to order that she be reburied where *THEY* want her buried.
from another story earlier:
One of Mary’s brothers, Thomas Richardson, filed legal papers in White Plains on Thursday listing Robert Kennedy as the defendant. The document wasn’t made public and was then subsequently sealed, along with all other papers related to the case, by Judge Joan Lefkowitz.
The court filing came on the same day that the Kennedys had announced their memorial plans for Mary, which included the wake Friday evening, a funeral Saturday morning at a Roman Catholic Church, and burial later in the day near the family’s seaside compound in Hyannisport, Mass.
Meanwhile, Mary Kennedy’s siblings announced through their lawyer, Kerry Lawrence, that they were planning a memorial service in Manhattan, though they didn’t say when.
Lawrence declined to answer questions about the court filing Friday. The lawyer listed in court records as representing Thomas Richardson, Patricia Hennessey, had also served as Mary’s divorce lawyer. Hennessey did not return a phone message.
Oh, barf! This is like Ted giving a eulogy for Mary Jo, except back in those days the Catholic Church would never have allowed such an abomination.
Another self-serving Kennedy. Using a eulogy to make himself look good. Classy.
Because a Kennedy had to be the center of attention
It's the Kennedys.
Teddy was married to his wife for 25 years and had the marriage annulled by paying off the catholic Church,he turned her into a drunk and the Kennedy’s claimed she had mental illness, then he killed Mary Jo and remarried, but the Cardinal officiated at this killer and abortionist lover’s funeral.
I’m sure a check was written, or one has been promised. It’s the Kennedy way.
and may his live in woman friend see her career go down the tube..living with a married man...oh what character they have...bet his kids are really PROUD of him...
and I noticed the Press didn't use Caroline Kennedy's married name..I think she is also divorced...
It is said the whole family had shut her out of visiting Hyannisport once the divorce was announced. She was, in effect, blackballed from the(Kennedy)family events. It’s no wonder her family didn’t want her buried up there.
IOW: My kids killed her.
The Kennedy Men - Waging a war on Women for over 80 years.
The best of them???? He wasn’t the best of them.
” and had the marriage annulled by paying off the catholic Church”
Show me your proof that he paid off the Church. Who got the money? How much was it? How do you know? What’s your source?
Why in Sam Hill would she marry a Kennedy if she didn’t want children?
