It immediately made me think of this:

I haven’t spoken to my mother since Ted Kennedy’s passing, but I wonder how this has made her feel. She was a supporter of both JFK and RFK and I know that she was, and perhaps still is, profoundly saddened by the fact that we never got to see the country that they both wanted us all to live in. That Teddy was able to live a full and productive life fighting for causes and people that might have otherwise been overlooked might give my mother some peace of mind.

If nothing else, the three of them are finally together again and, for me at least, this is how I’ll always remember them:

The Kennedy Brothers

R.I.P. Ted. You, and your brothers, are missed more than you know.
