Let Queen Elizabeth II’s commitment to service be a universal reminder:
“People in loving service are rare in any walk of life. Leaders of loving service are still rarer.
“Service in life, hope in death. All who follow the Queen’s example, and inspiration of trust and faith in God, can with her say: ‘We will meet again.’ The pattern for many leaders is to be exalted in life and forgotten after death. The pattern for all who serve God – famous or obscure, respected or ignored – is that death is the door to glory.”
– The Most Reverend Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury
