Boston, MA 092909 Crowds started to gather around the Mission Hill neighborhood in Boston on August 29, 2009 in the hopes of catching a glimpse of members of the Kennedy clan or other dignataries attending sen. Ted Kennedy service at Mission Church. For the majority it was a somber event but there were moments of levity when the senator's relatives would recount a tale of their beloved Kennedy patriarch.(Essdras M Suarez)/ Globe Staff
Crowds also gathered in and around Flann O'brien's bar to watch the event on TV sets all over the bar.
