Following the sad passing of HM Queen Elizabeth II, our Moderator has released the following statement.
On this sad night for our nation, we remember the long years of service devoted to our country by our late Queen Elizabeth II. We thank you for the high quality of commitment and service to which she dedicated her life.
At this time, we pray for those who will miss her the most. Members of her family and household who spent the most time with her and while we mourn her loss as monarch, they will feel deeply the loss of a mother, grandmother, great grandmother, friend and employer.
May those who remain emulate her qualities and respect her example and be worthy of her legacy.
Rt Rev Lena Cockcroft
