THE PHOTOGRAPH of a little boy saluting his slain father President JFK’s casket touched the heart of a grieving nation.

It also made Dan Farrell, the man who took it, famous.

Recalls former New York Daily News photographer Farrell: “It was the saddest thing I’ve ever seen in my whole life.

“I’m just glad my emotions didn’t take over when I was trying to take the picture.”
