Elizabeth's Funeral
There was some question about whether or not the funeral service for EAE was public. I just checked, and it is.

http://elizabeth-edwards.org/funeral /

For those of you who wish to attend, the map is listed there. There will be a couple of DUers going--maybe more, but I'm only aware of four.

Here's another map for parking options that someone forwarded:

Also, feel free to write a kind note at EE.org site or two other options:

Moveon.org--http://pol.moveon.org/edwards_condolences/?rc=fb
News & Observer Guest book: http://www.legacy.com/guestbook/newsobserver/guestbook....

I'm seeing that 350 people on Facebook are planning a human shield to protect the kids and families from having to deal with those God-awful protesters from the WBC.

I cannot attend the event, but a few of us are making some tentative plans to get together in the spring in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area to celebrate her life. When I have more details (which I won't have for at least a couple of months), I'll be certain to share them here and perhaps we can find a lovely place that can accommodate us but isn't too expensive.

I will be putting up a diary on Saturday evening or Sunday morning at the Daily Kos as I will have to wait for reports via the news and from the four who are attending, so be looking for that.

For my part, I intend to wear a pink ribbon (or have something pink handy) on Saturday. While Elizabeth's death is tragic, I believe she would want us to support the survivors.

2. wral and wral.com will broadcast/stream the funeral
Details are at http://www.wral.com

The links to the stories get changed with newer versions, so safer to just look for the latest version. wral has surprised me with its coverage of EE, with quite a few positive stories and videos that don't mention the scandal. Could be that more of their reporters are involved, not just the 2-3 who have been relentless. Their moderators had to delete a lot of posts early on; posting are disabled over weekends and nights, except for the sports section, so it is almost safe to follow wral, wral.com in their coverage.
