Dear Iveta,

I am so sorry to hear this very sad news. Ruta was a lovely lady and a powerful advocate for Latvia, for education and for the ESU. We shall miss her.

We are fortunate to have you to continue the excellent work that Ruta began and we will look forward to working closely with you in the coming months.

With our condolences and very good wishes
