This was the same church where she, years earlier, had given the eulogy for her brother.
Her voice, cracking at first, became more assured as she spoke, growing steadier as she recalled the things that she loved about her mother.
"I am who I am today, and I will become whoever it is that I will become, in large part because she was my mom," she said, with the poise of someone much older than her 28 years.
The daughter of Elizabeth Edwards, who friends know as Cate, even drew laughs from the mourners at the Edenton Street United Methodist Church in Raleigh, »

Elizabeth Edwards' public funeral service has been set for Saturday (Dec. 11) and will include eulogies from two close friends and her oldest daughter Cate, reports Pop Eater. The service will be at Edenton Street United Methodist Church at 1 p.m. Et in Elizabeth's hometown of Raleigh, N.C.
A private burial for family only will be held at a later time.
A family friend says that estranged husband John will be in attendance because that's what Elizabeth would have wanted. He was with Elizabeth when she succumbed to her six-year battle with cancer on Tuesday (Dec. 7). He is also reportedly setting up a foundation in Elizabeth's name to help raise money for breast cancer research.
The family friend tells Pop Eater, "He will never forgive himself for what he did to her and she will remain in his heart for the rest of his life. We were all praying for a miracle. »
The Venice Film Festival progresses. Day 4 of 11 today. So let's pretend we're there for a moment and check in. You can't have a good glitzy A list international film festival without immortals like Catherine Deneuve showing up (pictured left). Why is she shielding her eyes for she is brighter than the sun. All in all things seem to be going well. Take the premiere of Black Swan for example. Opening films don't often make that much of a splash, divisive or otherwise.
Another big question mark film of the 2010 film season is Sofia Coppola's Somewhere (trailer discussion). It's her follow up to the poorly received but delicious Marie Antoinette (2006). She's back to the present day for this film about an actor (Stephen Dorff) visited by his daughter (Elle Fanning) at the Chateau Marmont.
The reviews have been mixed but more than most filmmakers I trust not any reviews about her work. »
