Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has been the exemplar of public service and stability during her long and storied life. She ruled the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth of Nations with a constant, quiet, yet comforting presence. Her resiliency throughout decades of dedicated service is unmatched. I will always appreciate the Queen’s passion for nature and the environment, the protection of which she prioritized as an enduring part of her legacy. My heart goes out to not only the Royal Family, but to everyone who is mourning her passing today.
