Ted Kennedy Jr. remembers his father

BOSTON, Massachusetts (CNN) — Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's son Ted Jr. remembered him as a man who 'never stopped trying to right wrongs' at his funeral Mass Saturday at Boston's Our Lady of Perpetual Help Basilica — Boston's famed 'Mission Church.'

'My father was not perfect, but he believed in redemption,' he said.

'Although it hasn't been easy at times to live with this name, I have never been more proud of it than I am today,' Ted Jr. said.

He said his father had made light of his failure to become president, despite the weight of expectations on him as a Kennedy.

'I don't mind not being president, I just mind that someone else is,' he quoted his father as saying.

The funeral began with a hearse bearing Kennedy's body through Boston rain from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library to Mission Church. A military honor guard carried the coffin through a sea of black umbrellas into the church."
