May god rest her soul, and may her family come together to grieve and to honor her extrodinary legacy. She has many life lessons for all of us.

Most British people have never known another monarch, so she’s been a thread winding through all our lives. She did her duty by the country right up until her dying hours, and became an enduring, positive symbol of Britain all over the world. She’s earned her rest.”
“A beautiful moment for a woman who defined an era. She gave her people seven decades of service and will be remembered for her dedication. My heart is with her family and those who loved her. Rest peacefully Queen Elizabeth.”
