June 8, 1968, New York
St. Patrick's Cathedral
The last surviving Kennedy brother, 36-year-old Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, eulogized his brother in St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York.
"My brother need not be idealized or enlarged in death beyond what he was in life," the younger brother said, his voice breaking. "He should be remembered simply 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."
Among the 2,300 mourners who filled the cathedral were President Lyndon B. Johnson, an estimated 200 Catholic priests, and Kennedy's 77-year-old mother, Rose.
