He has not been a sympathetic character of late but I wouldn't wish him ill. I keep thinking he's the last of his breed.
Just sad. Not my favorite Kennedy, but still sad.
Very sad. When I worked at the Senate, he was known for being very kind and generous to his staff, even those who were usually so far down the food chain, most people forgot they existed.I hope he is able to enjoy whatever time he has left when he is still feeling OK.
I'm incredibly sad. Oddly I cannot imagine life without him there on the Hill, waging his battle for basic decency. I keep thinking that none of us can possibly be that old...(and unfortunately, I'm wrong)(sigh)
I think he and Senator Byrd are among the last of the true greats. They don't make 'em like that anymore.
Though I understand that his particular condition does appear quite dire, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone, famous or otherwise, I hope that his situation brings attention to brain tumors and treatments, because not all of us who have a brain tumor expect to die. He is not my favorite Kennedy, but I hope and know he will fight and fight with the technology that is growing.
What I meant to say was, I hope awareness will grow, because so many people think any brain tumor is terminal, and that's not always the case. I'm not expressing myself well, so I'll stop.
