LONDON - Margaret Thatcher's son says his mother was blessed with a very long and full life. Mark Thatcher made his first public statements outside the family's home in southwest London Wednesday. The former British Prime Minister died from a stroke Monday at the age of 87. Her son says while she lived an incredible life, her passing still marks a very difficult time for the Thatcher family.
"We have quite simply been overwhelmed by messages of support and condolence of every type, from far and wide, and I know that my mother would be pleased they have come from people from all walks of life," said Mark Thatcher.
Meantime, Queen Elizabeth II is planning to attend Thatcher's funeral next week at Saint Paul's Cathedral in London. Mark Thatcher says his mother would have been honored and humbled to have her there.
