Taylor Swift accompanied her boyfriend Conor Kennedy to his mother’s grave Sunday in Hyannis, Massachusetts.  According to the New York Daily News, they were a part of a group that visited the still-unmarked plot. Taylor reportedly held Conor’s hand during the visit, and the group is said to have said a prayer at the site.

Conor’s mother, Mary Richardson Kennedy, committed suicide in May while in the middle of a contentious divorce from Conor’s father, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

Taylor also reportedly met several more Kennedy family members when she accompanied Conor to cousin Kyle Kennedy‘s wedding on Saturday.

The New York Daily News offers some more insight into Conor’s life. He’s a student at the prestigious Deerfield Academy in Deerfield, MA and has an interest in researching whales. Conor volunteered on a project to extract DNA from whales in the Gulf of Mexico earlier this summer to see how the 2010 BP oil spill affected them.
