Kennedy funeral
« on: August 30, 2009, 12:39:38 PM »
If any of you watched the Ted Kennedy funeral, what kind of emotions, feelings, etc. did it bring out for you?  While I know he was not a "child", there were things that I got and am wondering if I am alone in my feelings.

I watched the funeral,but it was far overshadowed by the tragedies in Buffalo this past week.

I see his passing as almost the last of that generation,,,,

Love,
Dena, Josh's Mom

Hi Rebecca, it's good to see you and hope all is going well with the family. Have been thinking of you!

I did not watch the funeral.

Hi Rebecca - listening to the things people were saying about Ted Kennedy's compassion for others made sense to me.. he knew what it was like to grieve - he lost two brothers so young - I think his care and compassion for others was born out of his own family's tragedy.

hugs, Karen
