November 21, 1997

WASHINGTON (AP) _ Sen. Edward Kennedy visited Arlington National Cemetery Friday to mark the 34th anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination.

Kennedy planned to be in Massachusetts Saturday, the actual anniversary.

Kennedy, D-Mass., accompanied by his wife, Vicki, left white roses at the graves of President Kennedy and his wife, Jacqueline. The couple are buried near the graves of their first child, an unnamed daughter stillborn in 1956, and an infant son, Patrick, who died three days after birth in 1963.

The senator also visited the grave of Robert Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1968. Thursday would have been his 72nd birthday.
