A Letter from President Jimmy Carter

Rosalynn and I join countless Americans in mourning the passing of a remarkable woman. Eunice Kennedy Shriver's tireless work on behalf of those with intellectual disabilities will be an inspiration for generations to come. The success and growth of the Special Olympics is a fitting legacy. We will keep her family in our hearts and prayers during this difficult time.

Jimmy Carter

Former US President
