The Kennedy funeral location is Our Lady of Perpetual Help. It is in the Mission Hill district of Boston and is commonly known as the Mission Church. It was chosen because according to reports, the senator frequently went there to pray during the years that his daughter battled illness; as recent stories of Kara Kennedy cancer have revealed. The Kennedy family said in a statement:

“Over time, the Basilica took on special meaning for him as a place of hope and optimism.”

That is the latest word on the Kennedy funeral arrangements; wake, public viewing, memorial service, and ceremony. Watch the Ted Kennedy funeral live video — live streaming web-feed below, along with photos.

    The Kennedy legacy has come to an end. Our country will greatly miss their influence, their knowledge, and desire to make the USA a better place to live. My heart and prayers go out to the family and closest friends of Ted Kennedy.

    As a proud Texas Democrat since my voting age in 1972, Ted Kennedy, along with Jack and Bobby, exemplified all that could be great in this country. Not “dog eat dog” and the strongest survive, but that everyone, the poor, the elderly, the young, the disadvantaged and the unfortunate deserves the dignity and respect that this great nation stand for. Sadly, this may be the passing, not only of one of the greatest public servants of all time, but the end of the era of dedicated politicians with the guts to stick to their principles in spite of what’s popular at the moment. Remember, when Reagan was the alleged “second coming” and the resurrection of the Republican party and the rebirth of the rich getting richer and poor getting poorer and, amazingly, the country was going along with “trickle down economics” in spite of their personal declining quality of life, Ted Kennedy stuck to his guns of provided adequate funding and maintaining social programs for just those I mention above. He will be missed and, sadly, never replaced. The book closes on Camelot! I’m blessed to have experienced the 50 years!

    a flawed man.
    a fierce advocate.
    a fearless leader.
    a senator without equal.

    Ok. If this man was named Ted Smith, how lauded would he be, based on his achievements?

    I’m trying to separate the man from the mystique of the family name.
