Dear Dr. Timothy Shriver,
I feel shocked and saddened by the news of the pass-away of your mother, Ms. Eunice Kennedy Shriver. I'd like to extend my sincere condolence to you and your family.
Your mother is a great lady. She is passionate, wise and full of pioneering spirit. This gentle but strong-willed lady has greatly influenced the perception and attitude of the world towards people with intellectual disability. The Special Olympics movement she initiated has fundamentally changed the life and destiny of millions of people with intellectual disability and their families worldwide. She will be memorized and missed by the Special Olympics family, including the Chinese people forever!
I am sure that your mother is very proud of your many achievements and she is assured that the Special Olympics movement continue to grow and prosper under your leadership.
