Today we celebrate the heavenly birthday of the great Ted Kennedy.
While I knew “Senator Kennedy” all my life… My father and his brother President John F Kennedy had a strong relationship going back into the ’50s… They met in 1956 at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago.
JFK and Jackie even attended the 23rd annual Rice Festival in my hometown of Crowley, as the guest of my mother and father as seen in the photo below.
In July of 1992, “Senator” Kennedy became, “Brother-in-law” Ted Kennedy, when my sister, Vicki, married the love of her life. In fact, I was quoted in an article in NOLA: “Rock solid” is how Victoria’s younger brother Ray Reggie of New Orleans described the marriage.
As I said back when he passed, “We’ll miss him dearly, Ted was not only the Lion of the Senate, he was also a loving, caring, family-focused husband, father, and a great friend.”
