Remembering Senator Edward M. Kennedy

Delivering the eulogy for Robert Kennedy in 1968, Ted Kennedy said, "My brother need not be idealized or enlarged in death beyond what he was in life, to be remembered as a good and decent man, who saw wrong and tried to right it, saw suffering and tried to heal it, saw war and tried to stop it. Those of us who loved him and who take him to his rest today, pray that what he was to us and what he wished for others will someday come to pass for all the world."

"The work goes on...the cause endures...the hope still lives...and the dream shall never die."
Senator Ted Kennedy, 1932-2009

Hi Jeanette, I hope all is well. I was just reading your blog entry about Senator Ted Kennedy and it made me stop to reflect. I was just 5 years old and then 10 with his brothers left us. Now Teddy has gone on to be with them. So sad, it seems like the end of an era sort of. However, the Kennedy name and their good deeds will live on forever. Thank you for yor comments on my piece. I really appreciate it. I'll finished it this weekend (applying beads, etc.) and post a close up so that you can see all of the thread painting. It was alot of work! Regarding IQF Houston- I won't be able to make it after all. I have to take a business trip during that time. Let me know how it goes, and tell all the ladies in the African American Quilt Group I said "Hey" Take care, xoxo, Sandra
