Elizabeth Edwards Funeral.

Elizabeth Edwards was laid to rest today at Edenton Street United Methodist Church in Raleigh, North Carolina. Her ex-husband and former Senator John Edwards and their children were present for the ceremony held in honor of the 61-year-old after she lost her fight with breast cancer Tuesday.

Elizabeth's 28-year-old daughter gave a eulogy, saying (via "We're still a family and Wade and Mom will always be part of our family."

She continued said: "Every smile and every hug she gave us we'll pass on to our own children."

She also read part of the letter Elizabeth left for her three children: "You were my great joy ... wherever I am, wherever you are. I will always have my arms wrapped around you."

More than 100 of Edwars' former staffers scrambled this week to get the funeral arrangements made after Elizabeth's passing.

Our thoughts go out to the Edwards family.
