Dear Mr.Timothy Shriver,
My heartfelt condolences to you, Mr. Shriver and the whole Shriver family.
I apologize for this delay which is due to my absence from the country. It is very difficult to digest that the torch which guided all of us in Special Olympics is no more. In this hour of great sorrow, my only tribute to the great lady is my promise to not let that light fade away.
Thousands of Special athletes share your grief at this moment and murmur a prayer for the eternal repose of her soul.
We all thank God for the gift of Mrs. Eunice Shriver whose spirit, vision and faith will continue to accompany us in our endeavors.
Honorary National Sports Director
