A Letter from Special Olympics Pakistan

Dear Tim,

I cannot find the words to write these sorrowful lines. Our Founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver is no more-but her spirit will live on forever.

Where would the Special Olympics Family be without our 'GUARDIAN ANGEL?' Her brave fight made her a 'PIONEER' a 'LEGEND' a 'SAVIOUR OF THE INTELLECTUALLY DISABLED' who can now face the world with a bold spirit.

I was very lucky to meet her at my IGM training in Washington D.C. and once again at the China World Games in 2007. Although she had become frail-yet she was still active and smiling to give each one of us hope and courage.

On behalf of myself and all Pakistan Athletes, Board Members, Staff, Coaches, Family and Volunteers we pray that God grant her eternal peace and may he give you and her family the courage to bear her loss.

May God also grant you and all of us strength to carry her dream to make "SPECIAL OLYMPICS LIVE FOREVER"

Yours in sorrow,

Adil Asif Visram and All Athletes from Special Olympics Pakistan
