You were the last bastion of the Senate, and my favorite "fighter" in that body...your brothers are permanent fixtures in my mind and constant reminders of "democracy" in my heart...but you are my favorite of all!! Such a tremendous bulldog for the "have nots" and being the guardian of "the right thing to do"...you made a tremendous impact on my mind and you did it with such righteousness and commitment that I will never forget....I believed in you then and now I always will. You gave so much that I wonder how you were able to carry through to the end...I remember the "last" visit to the Senate and your 'last in a lifetime vote'...it broke my heart to know you would never visit again. From your passing to this day, I can still hear your pleading and determined voice ring out...and it is music to my ears. So on behalf of like-minded compatriots, we thank you Senator Kennedy for everything you did for this country, and for the way in which you represented us. I am grateful for your life and will remember your spirited family always. Peace evermore!!!
