A Letter from

Prince Ra'ad Bin Zeid

Prince, Royal House of Iraq

Dear Dr. Shriver,

It's with a great sense of shock that we got to hear of the passing away of your beloved father, the late Sargent Shriver, the beloved partner of life of your late mother Eunice, the Shriver family and the millions of Special Olympians around the globe. 

I on behalf of their Majesties King Abdullah II and Queen Rania, The Government and the People of Jordan convey to you Sir and to the Shriver family our warmest heart felt condolences and sympathies for the tragic loss of a great humanitarian and unique philanthropist and an outstanding American public servant. 

We indeed grieve and at the same time celebrate his indomitable spirit love of humanity that would now earn him to find resting place next to his beloved Eunice forever in eternal bliss. 

Ra'ad Bin Zeid
