“I declare before you all that my whole life whether it be long or short shall be devoted to your service.” –Queen Elizabeth II, at age 21
We are saddened by the passing of Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Britain’s longest reigning monarch who leaves behind a legacy of steadfast commitment to service. Her reign spanned 70 years, through wars, economic crises, pandemics, and social upheaval. She met with 13 U.S. presidents and, at the time of her death, was head of state of 15 countries throughout the Commonwealth, including the United Kingdom. Admired around the world as a symbol of endurance and continuity, she was well-regarded for her intelligence, knowledge of world affairs, and her respect for others.
We at Sheehy, Ware, Pappas & Grubbs join the global community in mourning Queen Elizabeth’s passing and celebrating her life.
