Sir. John Swan sends Condolences on the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

My heart has been saddened by the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. I extend my greatest sympathy to her family.

Those of us in the Commonwealth will feel the pain of the passing of such a special person and no doubt those around the world as well who saw her as a symbol of decency and graciousness.

I have been fortunate to have met her on a number of occasions and was honoured to have been knighted by her in 1990.

We should all in our own quiet way reflect on what she has meant to us individually and collectively and recognize that the torch has now been passed – Long Live The King!
