Is there someone you miss whose memory should be honored? Here are some ways.


Her relationship with Jackie: In a 2013 interview with the New York Times, she talked about being Jackie Kennedy’s sister.

“In some funny way, I’m lucky that there was so much more interest in my sister,” she said. “At times it was annoying, at times funny. Perhaps the most depressing part was that whatever I did, or tried to do, got disproportionate coverage purely because of Jackie being my sister. But you learn to deal with scrutiny, even the lies, as long as it’s not malicious.”
