Dear Mr. President
It was with great sadness that I learned of the death of President Napolitano. He was a dedicated public servant who devoted his life and career to promoting democracy.
I remember with great fondness our meeting during my visit to Rome in 2009 and, in particular, the friendship that existed between President Napolitano and my mother, Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
My thoughts and prayers are with President Napolitano’s family and the Italian people at this time.
