Kennedy to be buried at Arlington

Arlington National Cemetery Arlington National Cemetery

WASHINGTON (AP) - A Democratic source familiar with the planning says Sen. Edward M. Kennedy is to lie in repose at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston before his funeral at a city church.

Kennedy will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery near his slain brothers, another official knowledgeable about the arrangements told The Associated Press.

The Democratic source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the planning, said Wednesday details are still being determined by the Kennedy family.

The funeral Mass will be at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Basilica - known as the Mission Church - in the Mission Hill neighborhood of Boston. Kennedy prayed there daily while his daughter, Kara, successfully battled her own cancer.

Senator Richard Shelby (R)

"Ted Kennedy treated his colleagues with grace and respect, regardless of whether we agreed with him on the issues.  His presence and his example of comity and courage will be missed in the Senate.  My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this difficult time."

Congressman Artur Davis (D)

"During his 47 years in the US Senate Edward Kennedy helped remake the social contract in America and he helped forge a stronger more perfect union. American politics will miss his eloquence, the Senate will miss his genius in crafting compromises and translating good intentions into public policy. May God bless the Kennedy family."
