It is with great sadness that we learnt of the death of Her Majesty the Queen, Elizabeth II.
Chief Executive of Pilgrims Hospices, Helen Bennett said, “On behalf of everyone at Pilgrims Hospices, the Board of Trustees and I send our deepest condolences to the Royal Family at this very sad time.
“As a hospice, it is a particularly poignant moment for us to hear of her passing. During her unprecedented reign of 70 years, Queen Elizabeth II has been a source of inspiration to millions globally, in particular through the work that she, and her family, have personally undertaken to support local charities and hospices in the United Kingdom.”
This time of national grief may also bring up thoughts and feelings about personal bereavements and/or death and dying generally.
