Robert Kennedy Jr insists he is not responsible for wife Mary’s suicide
Telegraph (UK) ^ | 6:26PM BST 20 May 2012 | By Rosa Prince, New York

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 Kennedy’s 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 Patrick’s 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 Kennedy’s mother and RFK’s widow, Caroline Kennedy, President Kennedy’s 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 didn’t deserve it. I know I did everything I could to help her.”

Mrs Kennedy’s 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.

If you have to refute the charge, you have lost the argument.

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).

"If you have to refute the charge, you have lost the argument."

Was he even charged? Just saying why he would say this in the first place.....Guilty conscience maybe?

He (Kennedy) said: ".......I know I did everything I could to help her.”

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.

Her family didn't want her buried with the Kennedys! Why were they not able to stop it?

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.

Atta boy 'Bobby'. Marry the woman, indoctrinate her into your bizarre family cult, let her bear your four kids, then dump her so you can run the Hollywood party circuit with your new arm trophy. You're a tribute to the family legacy. "RIVER KEEPER" you make me wanna puke. How about being a "promise keeper"?

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.
