Statement On The Passing Of Queen Elizabeth II

(THURSDAY, Sept. 8, 2022) – Marcelle and I extend our condolences to the Royal Family and the people of the United Kingdom on the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.  Her reign was not only the longest for her nation, but witnessed momentous transitions that have made the United Kingdom the thriving, multicultural society it is today.  Her grace, her commitment to service and the steadiness of her character are examples for all to admire and emulate.  As a longtime member of the British-American Parliamentary Working Group, I recently traveled to London to take part in our annual conferences.  The respect in which Queen Elizabeth was held was evident in all I met, and the outpouring of emotion worldwide today, is tribute to her steady presence as head of state.  She will be missed.
