A Letter from Special Olympics Botswana

Enlarge this Letter

To: Dr. Tim Shriver

Chairman, SOI


The Special Olympics Botswana Family is indeed saddened by the passing away of our founder, Mrs. Eunice Kennedy-Shriver.

Like all humans, we are aware that the flesh will not be there forever, but what Mrs. Kennedy Shriver, started in 1968 will live forever and therefore she will never be forgotten.

To the family, we wish you to celebrate her life because she has run a great race and you should keep that medal (which is made up of three circles representing gold, silver and bronze surrounded by 5 flying ribbons) in the highest where it belongs because you are supported by over 3 million athletes and millions more in families, volunteers, coaches and friends of Special Olympics.

May the Good Lord Bless you and may her soul rest in perfect peace!!!
