Ted Kennedy Jr. delivered some heartfelt remarks at Lady of Perpetual Help Basilica in Boston for his father, Senator Edward ‘Ted’ Kennedy, who died of brain cancer last week. He said, “Although it hasn’t been easy at times to live with this name, I have never been more proud of it than I am today.”

Teddy Jr., a childhood cancer survivor, grew very emotional when he shared one particularly poignant story about sledding on a snow-covered hill with his father, shortly after his leg had been amputated.
