Editor's Note: A lot of you had some positive things to say about the airing of Ted Kennedy’s “Celebration of Life,” saying it was “fabulous” and “one of the all-time best programs.” A few complained that it was cut at the end leaving out the final few minutes which included everyone singing, “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling.”

The program "Ted Kennedy Remembered" was fabulous. My family and I think it was one of the best programs we have ever seen! The poor and unfortunate have lost a strong voice. We think you should speak up for them more strongly than you have been admirably doing. God bless you Anderson! God bless everybody!

"Ted Kennedy Remembered" is one of the all-time best programs I have ever seen! God bless America. God bless everybody.

dear cnn; thankyou so much for bringing this remarkable programme to us tonight. it's as if i'm sitting in too, at this wonderful dedication to the late se. teddy Kennedy. a beautiful and moving tribute to remember always. it's not been easy holding back the tears. Thank you.

I wanted to thank CNN for showing the Ted Kennedy wake. I didn’t realize how much it would mean to me.

I felt the need to voice my disappointment in Sen. Ted Kennedy's memorial being cut short, last night I am a fan of Anderson Cooper, but could have waited the 9 minutes you cut from the memorial. Missing "When Irish Eyes are Smiling" the highlight of the ceremony was sad. Discovering it on You Tube from CSPAN has led to me to rethink my news channel choices.

    Thanks so much for showing the wake of Senator Kennedy. Listening to the remembrances of his friends and family was very comforting – I especially liked the one about the trip with his college buddy to sail in a contest and his friend had never sailed before – John Culver I think it was. I think that was the highlight of the evening for me. I wish CNN would post each segment of the wake in the video section of this website. I would love to listen to John Culver tell the story again.
