RIP Eunice Kennedy Shriver

She might have been Arnold Schwarzenegger's mother in law, but we will remember Eunice as the sister of John F Kennedy. She died today, aged 88, after having her fair share of family unhappiness. The Kennedy clan is notoriously unlucky not so much in love, but life. Both JFK and RFK were assassinated and JFK Junior died in 1997 in a plane crash. 

Eunice's older brother died in the war and Edward, the youngest, had heart problems last year. But we do cherish this photo, not so much because of Eunice - may she rest in peace - but because it gives a very good indication of what JFK would have looked like today, had not been killed.
