REMEMBERING JFK JR.: 19 years ago today, on July 16, 1999, John F. Kennedy Jr. died when the plane he was flying crashed into the Atlantic off the coast of Martha's Vineyard, killing his wife Carolyn Bessette, and her sister Lauren Bessette
This is the last picture taken of Bobby just about an hour before we lost him on Cocoa Beach.

A year ago today, we lost a good man, who I considered a father.
What a gift for me.
Thanks to all of you for your kind words and guidance throughout this year!
We miss him so much!
It was 19 years ago today that John F. Kennedy Jr. died after his plane crashed into the ocean.
