The "Lion of the U.S. Senate" is gone (1932-2009)
The last of Rose Kennedy's men dies. Ted Kennedy passes on to the next life after being afflicted with cancer. He was 77.
Despite his many flaws, including those of his more historical brothers, the liberal part of the globe can not help but feel admiration for these brothers. Despite Chapaquiddick, and many other Kennedy life tragedies, Senator Ted it seems, were able to weather it all.
And now the last of them is gone. His remains lie in the Kennedy sanctuary, Hyannis Port in Massachusetts.
Reports say he will be buried at Arlington Cemetery.
