'The embodiment of...passion for life'


The following is from a statement issued yesterday by Dr. and Mrs. Richard Freeman and William J. Bessette, the parents of Lauren Bessette and Carolyn Bessette Kennedy.

Each of these three young people - Lauren Bessette, Carolyn Bessette Kennedy and John F. Kennedy Jr. - was the embodiment of love, accomplishment and passion for life.

John and Carolyn were true soul mates and we hope to honor them in death in the simple manner in which they chose to live their lives. We take solace in the thought that together they will comfort Lauren for eternity. We are especially appreciative of the privacy and support provided us by our friends and family and community. Nothing in life is preparation for the loss of a child.
