The funeral was held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Basilica in Boston's Mission Hill section. The church is commonly known as the Mission Church. It is a short distance away from the Kennedy library. Nothing fancy, just simple. In its hey-day, eight services a day totalling 15,000, today, only 900.
I think it is very cool that President Obama will deliver an eulogy. Senator Kennedy often frequented the spot to pray for his sick family members, as the Lady was believed to have healing properties.
Today, he is being interred at Arlington Cemetery.
Rest in peace Ted.
