Camelot man, may your spirit forever be with us, the people....
for you were always fighting battles for the commone man, even though you had been given a silver spoon.
RIP, your presence will be greatly missed.
As I battled my own cancer this past year, I thought of you often.
Now you may join the other missing family members who helped determine our country's pathways through war and peace,
prosperity and hard times.
Thank you for all you did.

Kacy, You must have been up late. I hope  you are feeling okay. I am at work and heard he passed around midnight. He was a good man no matter what his personal  mistakes were and deserves our respect now as much as any other person. Thank you, jo

I very rarely agreed with anything he said or did, politically; however, I absolutely respected the fact that he was able ot stay in the Senate for 7+ terms.

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting, "WHAT A RIDE

A member of a family of our times, yours and mine, is gone; may he rest in peace.

He had large shoes to attempt to fulfill; I think he tried to do so in many ways.

Not many families of his sort will probably ever have that type of legacy again.

God Bless.

The last of a truly remarkable generation of a family the likes of which will not be seen again soon. Thanks for the tribute Midnitesun.  Joyce

Thanks Margherita, Ringo, Sushine, Jo, Joyce, and Sue.
Senator Edward Kennedy was a great statesman,
a rare breed who could bring both sides of the aisle together
and produce legislation that was good for the people.
