Jones: Thoughts and Prayers with Kennedy Family

House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. issued the following statement after hearing of the passing of Eunice Kennedy Shriver.

I am disappointed to hear of the passing of Eunice Kennedy Shriver, a woman who has been a tremendous ally to people with disabilities.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Kennedy and Shriver families as they mourn and grieve the loss of a great woman, who will forever be remembered as the founder of the Special Olympics. She gave so much to that community and for that we will forever be grateful.
