So sad    

I personally knew Mary Kennedy, she was the sweetest woman ever. She always had a smile on her face and no matter her status as a Kennedy she treated everyone like a human being!! R.I.P well miss you

Fools Rush In    

It's not a wonder that the marriage split apart, both Cheryl Hines and Robert Kennedy filed for divorce from their respective spouses within days of each other. Infidelity will do that to a marriage, even both of the marriages Catholic and supposed to be for life.

I doubt Mary was perfect but many don't do very well under a high profile divorce.

No matter what they say about the Kennedys, they still was a good family and they wasn't racists. If we had a President like "John", the USA would be a better place to live. Give me a "Kennedy" anyday over what I've seen in the past since his death. Wall St. would be legally eliminated if he were still alive.

"She loved her children without reservation"....was this an achievement? Why would she have loved them "with" reservation?

To see her children and husband in the newspapers together for the past 2 years, when they probably weren't even divorced yet, had to be so humiliating, how could Cheryl Hines and RFK, jr. live with themselves.

Mary hung herself. She had been battling problems with alcohol and depression. Knowing Bobby, I see how hard it would be to be married to him. It's so sad. My heart breaks for the kids.

That is one dangerous and even fatal family. maybe she just couldn't take his weird squeaky voice any more. He also probably rubbed it in her face the way he publicly took up with the Curb Yer Enthusiasm lady.
