Three-year-old John F. Kennedy Jr. salutes his father’s casket in Washington on Nov. 25, 1963, three days after the president was assassinated in Dallas. His widow Jacqueline Kennedy (center) and daughter Caroline were accompanied by the late president’s brothers Edward and Robert.
The caption that accompanied another, cropped version of this photograph when it appeared in the December 6, 1963, issue of LIFE: "Wife. Mother. Niece. Three generations wait outside St. Matthew's for procession to cemetery. Behind Mrs. Kennedy stands the President's mother. Sydney Lawford, daughter of Kennedy's sister Pat, is at rear."
