WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Edward J. Markey (D-Malden), dean of the
Massachusetts Congressional delegation, released the following statement
upon the passing of Kara Kennedy:

"Kara Kennedy was someone I admired. Whether she was campaigning for her
father in the 1980 Presidential race or crusading to help others overcome
their own health challenges, she was an inspiration to all of us.  We
mourn Kara¹s passing and grieve with all those who loved her.  We have
lost an incredible champion for the most vulnerable in our society, but
we know that Kara¹s legacy of compassion and loving care for others will
live on forever.
