Senator PARRY (TasmaniaDeputy President of the Senate and Chairman of Committees) (15:54): Lady Cowen has written to me and asked me to pass on some comments to the Senate. I do so because as Acting President representing the Senate at the funeral of Sir Zelman Cowen I wrote on behalf of all senators to the family. I will read Lady Cowen's response to fulfil her wishes:

Dear Senator Parry

Since we lost him, our family has taken great comfort in the many expressions of sympathy we have received. We are moved to learn how many lives he touched and how widely he was loved and appreciated. We will miss him terribly. Thank you for your kind thoughts. Please convey my thanks to all the members of the Senate.

It was signed by Lady Anna Cowen.
