On the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, mourners assembled at the gravesite of the 35th president at Arlington National Cemetery. He is buried there with his wife, Jaqueline Kennedy Onassis, alongside two children -- Patrick, who died after three days, and Arabella, who was stillborn. Brothers Sen. Robert and Sen. Edward Kennedy are buried nearby. Visitors left flowers, letters and prayers. Many of those in attendance were old enough to remember precisely where they were when they heard the news of the assassination.
