Dear Special Olympics Family ...

"... It is with a heavy heart that I write to let you know that my mother, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, passed away early this morning. …"

Portrait of Eunice Kennedy Shriver by David Lenz
National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution

" ... My family and I would be proud and honored if you would take some time to learn more about her life, share your own remembrances about her, and read the remembrances of others at a website that was recently established to honor her legacy, www.EuniceKennedyShriver.org.
In the spirit of her hope that everyone would share in the power of Special Olympics, I hope you’ll not only read and contribute to the site, but share it with friends."

With great appreciation,

Timothy P. Shriver

  1. It's too bad the media didn't give her the same farewell they gave Michael Jackson. She truly was an icon and made a difference.

  2. What a very touching letter. Eunice Shriver was an extraordinary women that did amazing things for many people. She will Be missed horribly by so many people.

    Thank You for sharing!

  3. I like what Cathy said in her comment; I definitely echo her sentiments; Mrs. Shriver did make a difference, compassionately and passionately for Special Olympics. Her legacy will live on in so many people's lives and hearts


  4. you are great person for special olympics
