He died of the same Cancer that killed My Brother, Hopefully He had family around Him when He went.

He died at his home in Hyannis Port Massachusetts surrounded by family and friends. Its the end of a politacal era.

He had his faults. His nature was to make amends through public acts. A man of his econmic stature could have easily ignored everyone but himself. He made a life making sure others were cared for. America has lost another hero

While I am sorry the man has died, he was hardly a "hero".
He was a champion of liberal causes, and much of what he worked for was meant to help people who could not speak for themselves. On the other hand, many disagreed with his politics as being too extreme. History may show who was right.

My personal opinion.... he should be laid to rest in Lake Chappaquiddick.

Good luck finding "Lake Chappaquiddick". But don't bother looking on Chappaquiddick Island because you won't find it there.
