Today America lost a great elder statesman, a committed public servant, and leader of the Senate. And today I lost a treasured friend.

Many have come before, and many will come after, but Ted Kennedy's name will always be remembered as someone who lived and breathed the United States Senate and the work completed within its chamber.
