Teresa Heinz Kerry 5:08 PM CST, Saturday, June 21st, 2014 Aboard Air Force Two over Houston, TX. February 1st, 2013: The Kerry's during happier times. Once again, Teresa Heinz Kerry had suffered tragedy in her life: losing her 2nd husband in tragic circumstances. With the flag-draped casket of her husband aboard with her & the rest of the Kerry family as Air Force Two was expected to land at Andrews AFB later in the evening, Teresa never left John's side inside the backroom (where the casket was placed), she didn't know what to think or even say. Fighter escort pilots accompanied Air Force Two all the way from Sao Paulo, Brazil to it's landing destination at Andrews AFB in Prince Georges County, MD. 7:37 PM EST: Andrews AFB Air Force Two landed at Andrews AFB, where the US Armed Forces Honor Guard walked up to the plane as the XST scissor truck (which had the flag-draped casket of the 68th US Secretary of State) was lowered so that the Honor Guard pallbearers can grab it, then walking slowly towards an awaiting hearse as members of the Kerry family exited off from Air Force Two, being escorted to watch the casket being placed into the hearse. It was an emotional scene to witness coming off of the heels of the late President Obama's assassination a month earlier. Over in Boston, MA., MA Governor Deval Patrick (D) ordered all flags across the Bay State to be lowered at half-staff until the evening of June 28th, the evening after Kerry's funeral. Patrick in a live statement from the Corner Office at the MA Statehouse said "The Commonwealth of MA & the United States of America lost a true patriot. Our condolences go out to Secretary Kerry's wife, Teresa, his 2 daughters, 3 stepsons, grandchildren & many family members including multiple friends. Our thoughts & prayers are with the Kerry family." From Phoenix, AZ: United States Senator John McCain (R-AZ) said "I'll always cherish our friendship despite strong disagreements during our long time in the United States Senate together. On behalf of Cindy & myself, prayers going out to the Kerry family during this tough time."
