Last of the Kennedy boys

I guess the news of Edward Kennedy has hit home for me is because I remember the impact on Canadians the deaths of President John F. Kennedy and Robert Kennedy in 1963 and 1968 and then later the death of John F. Kennedy Jr.and his Mother, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
I will be following this story of Sen. Kennedy battling a brain tumor with interest and prayer that his remaining days are close for him and his family.
As this story found in The First Post reads:

Ted's role as national uncle came with the final Kennedy tragedy, the death of JFK's son John in a plane crash redolent of the family hubris. He was the little boy saluting his father's coffin in 1963 and was the heir to the myth of Camelot.
For all his sins, when the last of the Kennedy Boys does die, it will be the end of an era.

Yes, and what a horrible way to go too. When JFK Jr died in July '99, I couldn't believe it! He was just too young.
