Ted Kennedy's Daughter Kara Has Passed Away.

| Filed under: R.I.P.PolitikSad Sad


So much tragedy. This poor family.

We're sad to report that Kara Kennedy, the eldest daughter of former Senator Ted Kennedy, passed away suddenly on Friday while working out in a DC-area gym yesterday, at the age of 51.
Her brother, Patrick Kennedy, said:

"She's with dad."

He also revealed that her passing was most likely due the malignant tumor she had removed from her lungs, and that the treatment "took quite a toll on her and weakened her physically. Her heart gave out."

So awful. Our deepest condolences go out to her husband, Michael Allen, two children, and all of her family and loved ones.

May she R.I.P.

    Obama always looks so funny when he gets up on his hind legs.

    Smoking kills. (yes she was a smoker before the cancer was discovered)

    Why on earth was my post deleted. Smoking kills good people and their loved ones feel so much pain.

    Time for Ethel to take out that old black dress again

    Re: MR Pete – This wasn't Ethel's daughter … Kara was Joan's daughter.

    One day, people like you will disappear and the world will let out a sigh of relief.

    Re: Genghis Khan – And I'm sure you look funny when you close your mouth to breathe. That must be a strange feeling for you.

    I love ya Perez, but if Ted Kennedy had been a Republican, would you have been so forgiving of the fact that he drunkenly drove his car off of a bridge and allowed an underage woman to drown inside? Just curious… The fact that people lauded this guy as a wonderful man and politician after that happened just disgusts me. He should have died in jail

    Ted Kennedy had three children.
    One lost a leg to cancer, but has since gone on to lead an exemplary life.
    Patrick served in the R.I. senate, but admitted to alcoholism and a problem with prescription drugs.
    And now Kara has passed away.
    Money is not the greatest thing in life. It can buy things, but it doesn't insulate you from the world.
    Ted Kennedy is responsible for a young woman's death, and he did not face criminal prosecution for his presumed drunken driving and leaving the scene of an accident. But he did pay a social and political penalty for his actions. That may be small comfort, but Ted did serve the people of Massachusetts well, and this should not be forgotten.
    Rest in peace, Kara.

    That is sad. She was too young.

    Re: curiousred – People like that will never go away. Unfortunately.

    RIP Kara!

    Bless her sweet little heart. Kara was likely working so hard to recover her health. I wonder if she had taken it a little more easy if she would have made it. :O(

    All the money that the Kennedy family has can't buy them health or happiness. This family is loaded with skeletons in thier closets. Lots and lots of stuff no one knows or will ever know about. They are all still human beings with feelings. RIP Kara and condolences to the family, yet once again for their loss.

    Re: ToriP – Who was also pregnant with his child. Let's not forget that the Kennedy family had a 'thing' for killing people who threated their political careers.

    Re: Barney – Uh obviously it wasn't deleted… You're just impatient.
