We mourn the passing of our Queen with profound sadness.
Over more than 70 years, Her Majesty grew to be a living symbol of faith, hope and service.
More than almost any other, our Queen was held with deep affection in the hearts of so many Western Australians and Australians.
In times of uncertainty and worry, she united and encouraged us with her confidence in our community and common humanity.
Her presence gifted us with continuity, familiarity and stability.
Today, we are united in our sorrow, but in coming days we will find joy in having been witness to such a noble, gracious and remarkable reign.
How lucky we have been to see such devotion to service above self.
We are comforted by the knowledge our Queen is now at everlasting peace with her husband.
My condolences go to the Royal Family and to all that share this loss.
God Save The King.
