Rest in Peace Mr. Kennedy




We were visiting DC with our good friends the Vogelsangs during Spring break of 2006. When we left the Senate Office building we ran into Senator Kennedy. He graciously offered to pose for a picture with us, gave us tourist tips and talked with us about environmental legislation. It made our trip very special. Thank you Senator Kennedy. You were a good good man and a great statesman. We will always remember that special day.

What a special story.

I have been thinking of this photo in recent days, and how glad you must be to have it, all the more since Teddy's death. I have been so overwhelmed with emotion; the morning his death was publicized, I started to cry in the kitchen as I fixed four lunches, and my youngest told her teacher, as a testament to the impact he had on so many lives, who promptly announced it to the class. Oh well, I'm not ashamed. I only wish we were in Massachusetts to share in the observances. MKP
