To you and the rest the Shriver and Kennedy families, my wife Susan and I want to express our must sincere condolences. No one who knew Mrs. Shriver ever doubted for a minute her deep commitment and determination to make a difference in the lives of millions of individuals around the world. And woe to whoever got in her way!
I was thrilled to be able to encourage volunteers to work with Special Olympics in their communities when I was director. I know that for many Volunteers that was the most satisfying part of their Peace Corps experience.
Our Sympathies and prayers are with you all.
