“Ted Kennedy was larger than life.  He was iconic.” – Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT)

“An important chapter in our history has come to an end. Our country has lost a great leader, who picked up the torch of his fallen brothers and became the greatest United States Senator of our time…”– President Barack Obama

I will never forget him.
Rest in peace my friend.  Your light will shine forever.
