The Royal Nova Scotia Historical Society joins with other heritage organizations around the world in expressing sadness over the death today of The Queen. Most of us now living can remember no other sovereign presiding over our Commonwealth of Nations. For seventy years, both annually and on special occasions affecting her world and ours, she has spoken to us, sharing her thoughtfulness, her concern, her wisdom, and her deep sense of duty. Over time, many of us have come to understand that these were her own personal thoughts, not crafted by others, but drawn from long experience and close observation. She will have a lasting impact on our collective memory as a nation.
On behalf of the Society, I extend deep sympathy to her family.
