WASHINGTON, Aug. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "We mourn the death of Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), who was a champion for vulnerable people throughout his life and a dedicated servant to our nation.
"In the midst of America's great discussion of health care reform, Kennedy was an advocate of much-needed support for older adults and people with disabilities. We hope that Congress will honor his memory with the completion of health care reform this year. The thoughts and prayers of the not-for-profit aging services community go out to Sen. Kennedy's family, colleagues and devoted staff during this difficult time."
