Kennedy, father of the family that produced four famous sons, was buried here Nov. 20. The private burial ceremonies, attended by 70 persons, mostly relatives, was in sharp contrast to the great state ceremonies that followed the assassinations of two of Kennedy's sons, President John F. Kennedy and Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. Another son, Joseph Jr., was killed in World War II. The elder Kennedy's sole sur- viving son, Sen. Edward M. Ken- nedy of Massachusetts, accom- panied his mother, Rose, at the services. A "White Mass" of joy was celebrated by Richard Cardinal Custing of Boston, long-time Ken- nedy friend, in Hyannis, a few miles from the famous "Kennedy Compound." The cardinal also delivered the eulogy, describing Kennedy, who died at the age of 81, as a man "speechless and severely crip- pled" for the last eight years. "Even when the tragic news of the assassination of his son, the 35th President of the United States, and the assassination of Sen. Robert Kennedy was announced, his courage never faltered," Car- dinal Cushing said. "Although unable to express his innermost thoughts, he carried that heavy cross, despite his own infirmity, with dignity, propriety, and vitality," the prelate said. Following the Mass, the funeral party drove 75 miles from Hyannis to Brookline where Kennedy was buried. Cardinal Cushing also took part in the graveside services.
