When a celebrity dies, it seems that they become more important, as if they accomplished more than they really did. Princess Diana accomplished so much during her short life that her humility could never be blown out of proportion. Her heart was golden, an she certainly proved that she is forever the ambassador of the peoples hearts. She will be missed.

I put my son on an Air Canada jet departing San Francisco Friday night to arrive in London Saturday morning on the first stage of a year attending college in Austria. He will have arrived to the news of Diana's death.

I have never met Princess Diana in person. I've never been out of the United States, but I feel like I had known her for a long time through all the news reports. It deeply saddens me to hear of the tragedy. It's as if I lost a good friend. I will always remember the good things that she had done and all the lives she touched. Especially the children. I really feel sad for her sons. They will miss her I'm sure. Thank you for the opportunity to send this message. It's one way to feel close to someone that is so loved.

Greetings from the States!
We too woke up this morning to the tragic news concerning Princess Diana. In my little village tucked in the heart of New York State, we prayed for her eternal at Sunday services, and for her two Princes. Your country is not forgotten as we are sure you all grieve this terrible loss. She was what we expect royalty to be in every sense of the word. She was England's finest Ambassador and through her England became a shining beacon for the world to see. She will be sorely missed throughout the world. We extend to the British people our heartfelt condolences. Sincerely,Mr. and Mrs Daniel Beecher, Camillus, New York USA

From the first news flash interrupting a TV program I was watching until I fell asleep 7 hours later, I was tuned into our complete coverage on NBC and in constant prayer for the Princess. The last time I experienced such shock and feeling of devastation and loss was upon hearing the announcement of the death of Pres. Kennedy. Princess Dianne was a special glow in a murky world. She took tragedy and turned it into good; shattered dreams and turned them into hope. She gave new meaning to the word "Royal" and provided a new definition to "Royal Duties". She may be gone, but the impact she made on all human being in her short time on earth will live long after the other "Royals" are dead.
If the world does not cry out against the invasion of personal privacy by papperazzi...does not make global changes in this area...then I am ashamed for humankind.
Death of a Princess

I'm so sorry to hear of the death of the Princess. It is quite unbelievable. I hope nobody ever buys a tabloid rag again. This is just so outrageous. She will be very missed, I feel that she was our Princess too.
My thoughts are with her family. Love Maureen from Canada
