Edward M. Kennedy
Last of the brothers is gone.
You might not have agreed with his politics, but for those of us who grew up in the sixties, the Kennedy family is woven through our history -- John, Bobby, Teddy; Jackie, Caroline, John-John.
The family had its share of grief -- money doesn't buy everything. Teddy's shot at the presidency faded after Chappaquiddick, and rightly so, but he spent the rest of his life making up for it.
