A Letter from Prince Ra'ad Bin Zeid

Mr. Sargent Shriver

Dr. Timothy Shriver

August 13, 2009

Dear friends

With great sorrow, we received the news of the passing away of the great Eunice Kennedy Shriver, the lady with unprecedented giving, sacrifice, and humility.

I wish that I could personally be there to join you and your family, and pay tribute to this distinguished lady, for nothing can be said enough to pay tribute for what she has done, to humanity in general, and to those with special needs throughout the world in particular.

We feel that not only the Shriver's, or the Kennedy's lost a dear and ever giving lady, we, in Special Olympics Jordan, and, all the world share with you that loss.

On behalf of myself, my family, and Special Olympics Jordan, sends our deepest condolences to you and your family, and may God rest her soul.

Ra'ad Bin Zeid

Royal Palace Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan
