On behalf of the Government of Alberta and all Albertans, it is my honour and privilege to recognize the profound and lasting legacy of Eunice Kennedy Shriver.

Mrs. Shriver was a remarkable woman who truly lived a life of service. her vision and advocacy were instrumental in transforming and expanding the lives of people with intellectual disabilities around the world.

Special Olympics athletes, families and coaches will forever remember and cherish their memories of Mrs. Shriver. Her unselfish dedication to improving the lives of others will continue to inspire those who share in her passion and dream for a better world for people with disabilities.

To the family of Mrs. Shriver, never underestimate what it means to know that you are not grieving alone. The thoughts and prayers of the citizens of Alberta, especially the Special Olympics Alberta family, are with you.

Ed Stelmach
