rest in peace Teddy

I was devastated last night when the news of Senator Ted Kennedy’s death was announced. I knew he was very ill. I knew he did not have much time left, especially after he did not attend his sister’s funeral two weeks ago. Still, it was heartbreaking to hear that he passed away late last night.

Thank you Teddy for all that you have done for this country. You have dedicated your entire life to public service to improve the lives of others. You fought for the young, the old, the sick, the poor. You fought for those with disabilities. You fought for equal rights for all.

Thank you for your fight to provide health care for all. It is my hope as it was yours that very soon every American will have decent, quality health care as a fundamental right and not a privilege.

My deepest sympathies go out to your family and friends. Rest in peace Teddy. Say hello to Jack, Bobby, and John...

Amen!
I too was devastated when I heard the news last night. I have cried several times during today, while watching the coverage on CNN.

It's really hard to believe he's gone. No doubt he was one of the good guys.

Agree with you there, G. Touching that the Nantucket Lightship came at dusk and shone its light on his sailbeauty, Mya. It's the Coast Guard's way of a 'distress' signal..... RIP, menehune

menehune, thanks for telling me abut the Nantucket Lightship. If it was on the news here, it would have been in the middle of the night. Very touching!

What a nice post, girasoli! I grew up with him always in public service, hard to believe he's gone. His legend will last...

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Girasoli, well said. Ted Kennedy as you said did so much in to help those in need and he will be missed. I'm glad that he got to see Obama become president to carry the torch and keep the cause going...

amy:

People have been spending hours and hours waiting to get into the Kennedy Library to pay their respects. He will be missed.
