Condolences to the Kennedy Family

Everyone has flaws and Senator Kennedy, as we know, had some of his own. But what burdens he faced - yet still managed to accomplish so much. All in all he fought the good fight for the people of this country, especially the poor and underprivileged. He will be sorely missed. Those on the right may not have agreed with much of his philosophy but he did deserve their respect and usually got it.

Rest well -- now with your siblings, in God's hands.
