Trivia: Ted Kennedy's mother, Rose

As a young child, Rose lived in the Ashmont section of Dorchester, Massachusetts, a few blocks from where I lived. She attended Girl's Latin School, the same school as my sister attended about 60 years later but graduated from Dorchester High School in 1906. The home on Ashmont later burned down, but a plaque at Welles Avenue and Harley Street says "Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Square". The plaque was dedicated by her son, Senator Edward M. Kennedy, on Rose's 102nd birthday in 1992. I had moved out of that area in 1963, so I never saw the dedication. She was a wonderful woman too and now Teddy is at peace with her, his father, sister and brothers.
