That sucks. My great-granny died 4 years ago, she was 91 and still sharp as a tack. She was a cool lady and really outspoken. She didn't put up with any crap, but she could still be really sweet.

My grandmother wrote the obit. The guy at the funeral home said it was so much better than what people usually brought them, which was usually a list of names and places.

It's funny, because when I asked my mom and grandmother once who I was like in the family, they didn't want to tell me that it was Granny, because they thought I'd be offended. I said something like "Are you kidding? Granny was awesome!"

All I can say is I grew up with this man, and his influence coupled wth my respect for him was such, that his comments soon became my opinions...

I will miss him.

Edward Moore "Ted" Kennedy
(February 22, 1932 – August 25, 2009)

Posted Image

U.S. Senator Edward Kennedy, a towering figure in the Democratic Party who took the helm of one of America's most fabled political families after two older brothers were assassinated, died at age 77, his family said.


"Edward M. Kennedy, the husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle we loved so deeply, died late Tuesday night at home in Hyannis Port (Massachusetts)," the Kennedy family said in a statement early Wednesday.


One of the most influential and longest-serving senators in U.S. history -- a liberal standard-bearer who was also known as a consummate congressional dealmaker -- Kennedy had been battling brain cancer, which was diagnosed in May 2008.
His death marked the twilight of a political dynasty and dealt a blow to Democrats as they seek to answer President Barack Obama's call for an overhaul of the healthcare system.


Kennedy made healthcare reform his signature cause. He recently urged Massachusetts lawmakers to change state law so the governor, if necessary, could quickly fill a Senate vacancy as the chamber debates the contentious healthcare issue.
Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid said in a statement, "As we mourn his loss, we rededicate ourselves to the causes for which he so dutifully dedicated his life."
Known as "Teddy," he was the brother of President John Kennedy, assassinated in 1963, Senator Robert Kennedy, fatally shot while campaigning for the 1968 Democratic presidential nomination, and Joe Kennedy, a pilot killed in World War Two.


When he first took the Senate seat previously held by John Kennedy in 1962, he was seen as something of a political lightweight who owed his ascent to his famous name.
Yet during his nearly half century in the chamber, Kennedy became known as one of Washington's most effective senators, crafting legislation by working with lawmakers and presidents of both parties, and finding unlikely allies.



Telling people I grew up on Cape Cod, there was always a standing joke, "Oh, you must know the Kennedy's..!"
Not really but I had seen them a few times. Once in 1963 when Jacqueline Kennedy was admitted for tests during her pregnancy and other glimpses in Hyannisport from time to time. The Kennedy family shadow loomed large in Massachusetts!
Love them or hate them, the death of Teddy will bring that Kennedy legacy to a close.

I think in my own twisted way I'll miss them...
