It's trite to say "Merry Christmas" where you're in a different and hopefully better place, but I hope you've found peace. You are so sorely missed. Hearts break often when I and so many others think of you. Much love.|

|Comments:||Happy Birthday, David....I just don't want to be on her tomorrow; so forgive me it being a day early....|
It seems that when I lose direction all I need do is think of you. You, who was not afraid to be a maverick. You,who never failed to give your unfailing support to your friends and yes, even family. You, who would understand the events of the past week that has rocked the Kennedy world,once again. You, are more importantly would want to reconcile family and maintain peace without spin.
My goals that I have set for myself are getting closer. Sometimes I don't feel you anymore and wonder why? Then I stop all the gym, the reading, the studying and just sit still and think of you, my friend. And, there you are. And, here I am, again trying to reconnect here.
Your special days did not go by without memory although I was not on the site I thought of you. Maybe God will allow his angel to come and help me find direction, again. If not, ask for His guidance for me.
RIP, my friend, I still love you.

What a tragedy! Deeply sorry for this shorten life due to abuse of drugs, alcohol and the loss of his father in youth, which certainly David never get fully recovered and dictated his future.
God bless you David Anthony Kennedy.

|Comments:||I too came across this site by shire accident, but since finding it I keep coming back to look again an again. I have always been interested in yr family as I was three yrs old when I saw JFK assisanated on tv. My whole family were deeply shocked that memorey has always stayed with me. I also remember David yr father being shot down too in that fateful yr of '68. What you must have gone through I've no idea. The pain must of been very bad to carry on yr young shoulders. I wish that I had known you to of been yr friend....I'm glad you are now with yr Father an Uncle God Bless David....from someone who still cares!!|
|Comments:||Happy Birthday, David. I hope you've found peace. I miss you and always will. Your memory haunts me, but I have found my peace as well. Love always.|
|Comments:||Happy Birthday,David, My friend. Words cannot begin to express what it is I have felt in my heart these past days. I truly miss my friend and as I treck back to N.Y., where my special destiny awaits, I realize again it is not for me,but for you that I work so hard.
It has been said it is in life that we must die
;perhaps in your case my dear friend it was in death that you lived! Your life has truly touched so many in these past years because you were willing to put yourself out there and be a friend to so many.
I still and always will love you,
I thought of you yesterday as a confidant who is still with me and not as a memory. I think I am finally putting all of this into perspective. Not leaving you but leaving the hurt behind.
I thank God for you and our short time together here and the somewhat controversial friendship we share now.You, dear,sweet David on that side of the veil and me on this side are still connected in a special way. With you as my guardian angel sidekick how could I possibly go wrong. :)
Love you today and always,

|Comments:||Merry Christmas, Sugar|
I know this time of year was particularly bittersweet for you and your family. Sad times, holidays and birthdays are all interspersed together. I hope you have found the peace that you missed while on earth, that innocence that was taken away at such a young age.
I still think about the things you would say and how you would try to be happy,for those you were around.But, those who knew you knew the truth.
RIP, my friend, no more painful memories ! You can finally heal.
You and your Pops are together again.
Life was tough for you but the problems
of this old world are behind you now.
Maybe I will get to see you in the Great
Beyond some day. God Bless.

All I say, I say for you. You will not go voiceless again, this site is dedicated to your concerns, not ours. To your pain, that pain that really never went away.
RIP, my friend.
BTW: I got the messages today loud and clear. You guys are the greatest.

your friend, annette
|Comments:||Today, David, I felt your presence with me, along with others, as I went through the educational hoops we like to call higher education.
All that I do I do in memory of you, for your memory is my strength. The faith you encouraged in me while here now is my bulwark as I go on to see my goals. Today I remembered that dream of so long ago,as I am finally there it reminds me I am not alone.
RIP, my friend. Thanks for being there on my day.

|Comments:||Speaking at the 1964 Democratic National Convention, Senator Robert Kennedy quoted Juliet from Shakespeare in speaking of his late brother. I pay the same tribute to Daid:
When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out into stars
And he shall make the face of heave so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.
|Name:||David P. Kenendy|
|Comments:||As Robert Kennedy quoted in his tribute to JFK at the 1964 DNC:
"When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out into stars
And he shall make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun."
Quoting Juiet from Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet"
|Comments:||They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them...
But where our desires and our hopes profound,
Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,
To the innermost heart of their own land they are known
As the stars are known to the Night.
As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
Moving in marches on the heavenly plain;
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
To the end, to the end, they remain.
"For the Fallen"
|Comments:||Happy belated Birthday, sweet angel. You are truly missed.|
|Comments:||Didn't get on yesterday. Didn't want to face another birthday without you in the world. I had a dream about you the other night. You were waving goodbye. I hope this means you're in a happier place now. There is always a place in my heart for you.|
|Comments:||Here in NY it is just a few minutes past midnight on this your 55th birthday.
You are still and will always be:
Forever young in our minds,
Forever young in our hearts.
|Comments:||Happy 55th birthday - 3 cheers for you! Hope my book released today does you justice. I lift a glass in your honor.|
|Comments:||I will always love you, David. And, 26 years later that love is just as special as it was then. More so because I now understand more than either of us then.
You are safe now with your Dad and family on that side.
RIP, my friend,
|Comments:||Wow, hard to believe it's been 26 years already.
Your life was short but seems to have impacted more people than you ever realized.
|Comments:||Remembered respectfully 26 years on|
|Comments:||HAPPY NEW YEAR, my dear friend, at the closing of another year spent without your smile, your grace, your love, your ways, your humor, yep,even the bad times. The moodiness, the tendency to withdraw, the temper,all rolled into one, YOU.You accepted those around you at face value, too bad the favor was not returned in your lifetime.You believed in honesty and ethics, that is a big part of the legacy you leave behind; not how you died, but why?
They say the world lost a potential for greatness when you left; I lost my friend, my cohort, my Irish Prince, that guy who became my protector. RIP, David, we will carry on and try to make you proud.
|Comments:||How can I miss you so very, very much after so long? How is it you never leave my heart or memories for too long? I wish I could turn back time and had pushed you that night at Aspen. Maybe you would have opened up to me again. I live with that haunting memory. I was too worried about myself to be there for my old love. Forgive me.|

"The answers quick & keen, the honest look, the laughter, the love,
They are gone. They have gone to feed the roses. Elegant and curled
Is the blossom. Fragrant is the blossom. I know. But I do not approve.
More precious was the light in your eyes than all the roses in the world."Edna St Vincent Milay, Dirge without Music (Excerpt)
|Comments:||I hope that you found peace and that your father found you. Reading about how close you two were is as touching as it is sad. It seems that you lost your way without him. That he was your compass and your protector. I recently read your cousin Christopher Kennedy Lawford's auto-biography and it was gut wrenching to read about your shared drug use. I wish you could have found your way to sobriety as well, but your pain must have been too great. I recently celebrated 20 yrs of sobriety and thinking of your life and untimely death reminds me to be humble,grateful and ever mindful that the disease of drug addition can not be minimized. I truly hope that you are resting comfortably with your dad. I'm sure he missed you and wished he could have stayed with you longer. God bless you David.|

As I reconnect with your memory, here, I know you are being reunited with your aunt and having a family reunion, there.
Though, those left behind are saddened by her loss, they can be comforted by knowing her to be among family and friends.

|Comments:||E' stato quello che ha sofferto forse di più per la morte cruenta di un padre che voleva continuare a portare la speranza nella concretezza della vita al mondo. Un figlio dolcissimo, tenerissimo come emerge dalle foto, attaccatissimo ad un padre che quando glielo anno portato violentemente via non è riuscito ad elaborare il lutto.
Una persona dolcissima e desiderosa di amore.
Pregherò con amore per lui.

|Comments:||Addendum: And "Buzz" I don't know who you are, but you have done an unbelievable tribute to Mr. Kennedy on this site. Were you best friends? Did you grow up together? I mean, I stumbled across this site and couldn't let it go. I've been reading the essays all day on my day off. Well, David must truly be out of pain now and with his Dad. I just wish he'd been given the gift of life to grow out of his pain and understand, that life is transition and the cards we are dealt in life, must be played, if there are any of the "walking wounded" reading this tribute, understand, it is alright to grieve and hurt and love, but at some point, you must go on with your life and live "your own life." You must take with you the gifts that the person you've lost, left with you and take those gifts and make them count in your life. I hope the rest of the Kennedy children have healed from there loss and understand at this point, that the entire point of those brothers JFK and RFK was to do what Obama is now trying to do, make a difference with the gifts they were given. Isn't it ironic that the Kennedys were instrumental in making this happen, this is mind blowing to me. What is past is prologue.|
|Comments:||I would like to say, I stumbled across this site and I am leaving a note to express my love and respect for the Kennedy family. I am an african-american and I understand the ties that bind. I was very impressed by this memorial to David and can see he was very much affecteed by the loss of his father. We never know the impact of such a loss on a human beings life when they lose a parent at a young age. I lost my mother at the age of three, due to her untimely death at 27 in a car accident. The impact was irrepabable. The photographs on this site tell the story. May David's pain be eased now that he is with his Lord and his father in heaven.|
|Comments:||I know the pain of losing a father when you are young, and need him the most. It haunts you every day. But you can be at peace with your Dad and God, now. Oh, what might have been.|

|Comments:||I was born in 1969 - well after both JFK and RFK were killed, and yet I grew up hearing stories about the Kennedys from my Irish American parents. I always had a soft spot in my heart for David, especially after he died in 1984. Although I did not know him personally, he seemed like such a sensitive soul, and I can imagine how it must have pained him to have lost his loving father at the tender and critical age of 13. I still feel a tug at my heartstrings whenever I see pictures of Bobby with David. I know that they are together again now, and that makes me smile. Rest in peace.|

|Comments:||I know the pain that drove you to it. Seeing too much too young, and losing too much. Witnessing insane violence and having someone you love just ripped away from you will cause such pain as you may feel the need to self medicate. There's other ways of trying to fill the void, depending on who you are and what your physiology is, but it's still all the same thing. Trying to fill the void, trying to forget the hopelessness.
I understand, David. I've been there too. I survived it, though not completely intact; there's a whole world of us out there, the walking wounded.
But with passing comes the peace of understanding, and the peace of God. I know you are understanding now. The torture of the body is over.
|Comments:||Miss and love you still. Went to Ireland last month..you would of laughed to see me drive. I'm no better on the "wrong" side of the road than I am the right. Cried a little, laughed a little. Thought of you so often. Still owe you a Harp.|

|Comments:||I wrote this in memory of you my dear friend who died today.
When I think of you on this day, I think of you with your angel wings;
You voice ringing out in heaven with the heavenly songs you sing.
When I hear the sound of a bell ringing, I think of you my sweet soulmate who understood me so well;
Who looked down from heaven and came and saved me when I fell.
When I hear the harp play I think of you my Irish hero, as to me you were always that knight in shining armor who came to save me;
You who always saw the best in me and saw my true Celtic heart where most people only saw the worst and harshly judged me.
Thank you my Guardian angel who I love as I have always loved you;
I know in my heart that someday I will see you in heaven and we will walk together in the morning dew.

|Comments:||My dear David,
It's so odd to see Mary's post right below mine. I want to tell you how much you have been in my heart and mind lately. You have brought such peace in my life these last few days. It's brought back some good memories for me. I've remembered some things I buried hoping I could stop the memories. I think it's time I learned to grieve for you. You know how much I loved you. Not a day goes by where I do not miss you. You're always in my heart and prayers. Thank you for giving me a friend who loved you as much as I did. You're my heart.
|Comments:||I have been thinking of you a lot these past few days, my protector, my knight in shining armor, my dear friend, and my soulmate.
The tears you see in my eyes are because I miss you so much. I have always loved Christmas, but this year I seem to miss you so much more. I know you are in a much better place, but those of us who knew and loved you while you were on earth have a void in our hearts that no one else can ever fill.
Thank you for being you!!!!!! Thank you for being kind, caring, and everything else wonderful you were. For being strong in all the areas that really matter in life. I love you my dear friend.
Merry Christmas and know that as I am singing at the Christmas Eve Mass I will be singing with the hopes you can hear me sing in heaven and my voice will be as pleasing to you in heaven as it was while you were on earth.

It took me a long time to get over how you died, but it brings me comfort to know you're up there with your dad and my mom. Maybe you can smile down at all the kids like us who lost our way when we lost our parent. I always miss and love you. I hope you've found peace.|
