Royal Memories

Queen Elizabeth II, who reigned over the United Kingdom longer than any other monarch, passed away Thursday at age 96. She sat on the English throne for 70 years, becoming queen when Harry Truman was still president of the United States.

As a Sacred Heart School student in Yankton at the time, Kristen Rezac’s choice for a homework assignment received a royal response.

The youngster wrote the 2009 letter to Queen Elizabeth II.
