Elizabeth Edwards' oldest daughter will give one of the eulogies at her public memorial service.Details of the funeral provided Thursday show that Cate Edwards will offer her memories along with two of her mother's long-time friends: Hargrave McElroy and Glenn Bergenfield. Edwards' husband, John, is not scheduled to speak.

McElroy was a close friend and a teacher at the high school Edwards' children attended and Bergenfield was one of Edwards' classmates in law school.

A service will be held Saturday at 1 p.m. at Edenton Street United Methodist Church in Raleigh. It's the same church that Edwards turned to after losing her 16-year-old son Wade to a car crash in 1996.

The service is open to the public while the burial will be private. Edwards died Tuesday, six years after she was first diagnosed with cancer.
