Mary Kennedy remembered at private NYC gathering
NEW YORK (AP) -- Friends and family have gathered at a New York City hotel to commemorate the life of Mary Richardson Kennedy.
The 52-year-old estranged wife of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was found dead of an apparent suicide last week at her home in Bedford, a hamlet north of New York City.
The event at the Standard Hotel in Manhattan on Monday night was private. The media were kept outside.
Her funeral was held on Saturday in Bedford. Mourners included actors Susan Sarandon, Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase and Edward James Olmos, tennis great John McEnroe and musician Paul Shaffer.
She was buried at a cemetery in Centerville, Mass., several miles from the Kennedy seaside compound in Hyannisport.
