Condolence messages received by Jackie Kennedy
Not as much as you and your family, but we and many who believed in his rightness today suffer the great loss of your great man.
No one can fully share the depth of your sorrow or convey the degree of their sympathy, but the prayers and thoughts of each of us reach out to you and your children.
Jackie Kennedy’s Response
Mrs. Kennedy is deeply appreciative of your sympathy and grateful for your thoughtfulness.
Elizabeth Dole’s tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales (Elizabeth Dole was President of the American Red Cross)
Diana, Princess of Wales, was a friend and champion to all humanity, especially those in greatest need, often forgotten by others.
The Princess brought the power of her presence, compassion, and her position to some of the most important humanitarian issues of our time, saving countless lives and bringing comfort to countless others. Her work to bring about a global ban on landmines did more to galvanize world opinion on this issue than any other single individual.
Her death is mourned by an entire world. We at the American Red Cross share the grief of the British people in the loss of a national and global treasure. We will miss her special touch and the love that she so effectively expressed through action. I have asked that Red Cross flags in front of American Red Cross buildings be lowered to half-mast in her memory.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to her sons, William and Harry, on the loss of their mother and to the families of those who were also killed and injured.
