RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Family and friends are gathering to honor the life of Elizabeth Edwards.

A funeral for Edwards will be held Saturday afternoon at Edenton Street United Methodist Church in Raleigh, N.C. Edwards had turned to that church after her 16-year-old son Wade died in a car crash.

Several political figures are expected to attend, including 2004 Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry, North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue and the wife of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy. John Edwards was Kerry's running mate in 2004.

Edwards' oldest daughter, Cate, is scheduled to give a eulogy along with two of her mother's longtime friends. John Edwards is not scheduled to speak.

The service is open to the public while the burial will be private.
