    Very sad, she was 88. Only two Kennedy siblings left.

    I don't know too much about her. Wasn't she very involved in the Special Olympics?

    RIP.

    Robert Kennedy's wife died today, by hanging. A sad ending.

    This is such a tragedy. Mother of four children, all under eighteen.

    Some of that guy's comments re the "Catholic" Kennedys and suicide are bizarre, to say the least.
    Carpe diem!

    That's a hell of a thing all right - hadn't heard it. That family has had such a string of bad things happen, both from within and from without, that it would almost make you believe in curses.

    It seems Mary Kennedy had problems with drink and prescription drugs, and due to on going divorce Battles were still legally married. It s sad for the kids, oldest 17 , youngest 11 , with the two eldest at boarding school and the two youngest with their dad at the time it happened, Robert Kennedy is dating the a tv star ( the wife in curb your enthusiasm ).
