Below is the text of the email, as quoted by the Times: 

Charlie:

This e-mail is to officially advise you that your presence at my husband's memorial services will be unacceptable. I have watched over the years, as Bill had, your transparent attempts to manipulate the political arena. I don't want my husband's memorial service to be another opportunity for that and I will not tolerate anyone turning this into a platform for political gain. 

Please honor my family's request.

Sincerely,

Beverly Young

Widow of Congressman Bill Young
