    Robert Kennedy and a lawyer for the Richardson family spent part of the day in court on Friday arguing the case, before Mary’s body was released to her husband just hours before her planned wake.

    The couple’s children -- Conor Richardson, 18; Kyra LeMoyne, 17; William Finbar, 15; and Aiden Caohman Vieques, 11 -- were living with their father in nearby Katonah when they weren't away at boarding school. He had won temporary custody of the children.

    Three of her four children read from the Bible. Actor Larry David and sister-in-law Kerry Kennedy offered remembrances. And Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who filed for divorce in 2010 from his second wife of 16 years, gave an emotional eulogy, saying he had feelings for Mary that he never had for anyone and will never have again.

    P.S. thanks everyone for the updates and family info & history.....I had forgotten so many of these incidents.
    It reminds me a little too much of the Rebecca Z case with the immediate unflattering comments disguised as concern.

    I suppose that if a person had tried suicide before (by taking drugs) but failed, he or she might decide to add hanging to the next overdose attempt to insure that if the drugs were insufficient to to kill, the hanging would seal the deal.

    I'm still stuck on the fact that her youngest child of the four is only 11, the oldest 17. Their lives will be completely overturned. Would she really choose to do such an awful thing to her children?
    I know nothing about Mrs. Kennedy and had never heard of her before this sad event.

    But I believe some people get to a place where they genuinely feel they are so useless that their loved ones (including children) will be better off without them. It's a feeling not a logical conclusion. And it's heartbreaking, of course.

    Read it and wonder.
    I have a feeling her struggles were made much more difficult by the actions of her husband. Call it a hunch, but I have a feeling that despite her attempts to heal, she was never allowed to do so. Someone was always there to bring her down again.

    JMO.

    ITA, and based on various articles I've read, I believe this is how her family feels too.

    Taking it a step further, would it really have been all that difficult to permit her family to bury her where they preferred? I realize the couple was still legally married, but...

    If she had died after their divorce, then what? Would he have pushed so hard for her remains to rest in one of the family burial sites? Does he plan to put his first wife and any subsequent wives there too? UGH

    ETA a few more thoughts to the last paragraph.

    According to news reports, RFK, Jr. even threw her family (sisters) off the property when they arrived there the evening of her suicide. They had to go to the police to get permission to go into her house.

    I feel badly for her, going through so much trouble to renovate the home to please him when he obviously didn't want to remain married. It sounds as though he hardly even lived there.

    News reports also say she had been sober for 5 months, yet his family still keeps referring to her as being drunk. What a mental manipulator that guy must be. I'm a lifelong Democrat, but this story has turned me against RFK, Jr. and his family, for good.

    The real curse of the Kennedys
    It’s their treatment of women

    By: Maureen Callahan


    Snipped

    Let’s just call it what it is: the natural fallout when you’re a member of a family riddled with entitled, underachieving drunks, drug addicts and adulterers, whose treatment of women is historically deplorable.

    Snipped

    The day after Mary Kennedy was found hanging in her barn, her estranged husband did what his family does best: sincerely insincere damage control.

    Boston University political historian Thomas Whalen said he didn't understand the reason behind the Cape burial, given the emotional blow she suffered from the breakdown of the marriage.

    "If I was a member of his wife's family and I think looking on the outside, again we see that image of the Kennedys playing by a different set of rules," said Whalen.


    Whalen said he also finds Robert Kennedy's reported decision to have a wake in the home where his soon-to-be ex-wife hanged herself inappropriate. Whalen wonders why the family couldn't have helped her more.

    That story, really hit home, as to maybe the kind of life that she had with him, and if she did suffer from depression, which I am sure she did, and with the drinking and drugs to ease the pain, and help her cope, till eventually, I do believe, it is very hard for a person to go with out, these coping aids, till eventually they take over your life, and end up destroying everything that you believe in, so very sad, I had never heard her name before, so Robert, certainly paid some people to keep her name out of the paper, via Inter-net re her arrests, she must have been so very lonely, and felt so betrayed, as we shall never know what she she had to go through being married to him, and I guess that is one of the reason, he was still not divorced, he did not want her speaking, but let us face it, with his money, and the people that his family know, he could have gotten a divorce in a second!

    Anyway, I feel sorry for the children, because this will be in the news for awhile, till the next sad story hits!

    Well said. I don't get the fascination some people have with the K's, including JFK. Seems like their wives put up with an incredible amount of nonsense from all of the K men. Jackie new full well JFK was a casanova, and I believe her demure soft-spoken act was just that.

    Twice-married RFK Jr., despite the ongoing rancor with the Richardson clan, spoke about his love for Mary, their London honeymoon — and their final conversation, one day before her suicide.

    “She said, ‘You know me better than anyone,’ and I said, ‘Yes,’ ” he told a hushed church, his voice breaking at times.

    “And she said, ‘I was a good girl.’ And I said, ‘Yes, you were a good girl.’ ”

    RKJ says his wife did NOT leave a suicide note but I suspect this is the reason Mary called her husband on Tuesday.

    Because there is no criminal investigation into her death, Robert can keep the innntimate details of their last conversation to himself.

    Mary Kennedy Laid to Rest in Centerville
    (includes a photo of Mary’s burial site surrounded by Robert and her three children.

    <snipped>

    After the memorial service, Mary Kennedy was laid to rest in Centerville, Mass., Saturday evening.

    Members of the procession gathered just after 6 p.m. at St. Francis Xavier Cemetery in Centerville to pay their respects. Mary Kennedy was buried near the graves of Eunice Kennedy and her husband R. Sargent Shriver. Local police had entries to the cemetery blocked off, as many vehicles slowed along Pine Street to catch a glimpse of yet another somber day for the Kennedy family.

    Her family are having a private memorial service on Monday at the Standard Hotel in Manhattan which is owned by Balazs.
