Friends, family and people from throughout Sargent Shriver's life gathered at Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church in Potomac, Maryland to honor him. Mourners came from all walks of life - teachers and politicians, celebrities and average citizens, rich and poor. They came to honor all that he embodied: service, dedication, compassion, humility, reciprocity and the spirit of charity. But most of all love and respect for all human beings.
Sargent Shriver was laid to rest alongside his wife Eunice Kennedy Shriver at St. Francis Xavier in Centerville, MA. View coverage of late-night burial service.
