Bittersweet Goodbye

A bittersweet goodbye today to Senator Edward M. Kennedy as the rain came down around The Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church where his funeral services were held today.



The youngest son of Rose and Joe Kennedy is no more and it seems that a very special political era is over. One filled with a true commitment of public service and looking out for those that are downtrodden or may be different from you. Of course we truly are so very the same.

But even in his own words

"There is still a light..."


Best,
Kwana

Thank you for posting! I didn't get to see any of the funeral, so it was good to see these pictures. He was a great and interesting man, whose presence will be much missed in D.C.

Ted will be sorely missed and never replaced. With John Jr and now Ted deceased The Kennedy influence and the shine of Camelot has ceased. I swear I can feel the end of an era.

Thanks Kwana! I grew up during Camelot and the Kennedys are such amazing people, I have always been fascinated with them and their lives. What a dynasty, it will be interesting to see if anyone steps forward.

I went to the gym on Saturday morning because it was raining here. None of the monitors were working (no TV) and it would have been nice to watch the funeral, but alas it was not to be for me, so I doubly appreciate your sharing in this fine post.

Many thanks, dear. xoxo
