Subject: Our Sincere Sympathy

Dear David and Yoshiko-san, 

We were incredibly sad to hear about the recent passing of Queen Elizabeth.  We would like to offer my sincere condolences on behalf of our company.

We are watching the Queen’s state funeral on TV.  Looking at her numerous ceremonies up to this day, we have reconfirmed how deeply she was respected by the people.

The Queen was much admired and respected in Japan.  She will be remembered for her grace, leadership and strong sense of duty.  We in Japan share your grief.

We are proud to have sold the Queen’s protected Cleveland Bay to the Imperial Stud.

Yours sincerely,

Toshie & Tomoe Kanasashi
