A Boutique Portrait Experience
I grew up in Chicago and became aware of politics when I was 7 and my grandmother, Mary Murphy McIver, was thrilled to have an Irish Catholic President. When I met my husband in college, one of the things we had in common was our admiration of the Kennedy family.
Almost 50 years later, here we are, living in DC, when the last of the Kennedy brothers was laid to rest. John was producing coverage at C-SPAN, so I went to the Capitol with my camera to join the thousands who went down to say goodbye.
The plane was late, due to weather in Boston, but everyone waited quietly, talking, standing or sitting in the grass. When the procession arrived, there were a few words, a prayer, and they moved on the Arlington National
Cemetery. Everyone walked quietly away, having said goodbye to a friend.
