Sad news hitting the Kennedy clan today. May he Rest In Peace..

Sen. Kennedy’s endorsement gave Barack Obama’s Democratic presidential candidacy a major boost in the 2008 primary season.

On May 20, 2008, doctors reported that the statesman had been diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor after suffering a seizure days before. That June, he underwent a three-hour surgery at the Duke University Medical Center in North Carolina.

Kennedy’s only surviving sister Eunice Kennedy Shriver passed away on August 11. The senator was too ill to attend her funeral service.
