  1. God bless Queen Elizabeth. A true and faithful servant of the Lord.
    Rest eternal grant unto her O Lord and may light perpetual shine on her.

  2. We are all humbled by Her Majesty’s life-long example of humility and service, and her outspoken Christian witness. I fear we shall never see her like again, at least not in this life.
