Carol Thatcher, the daughter of former UK prime minister, Margaret Thatcher, thanks those who have offered words of support, saying it will be a tearful week, "even for the daughter of 'The Iron Lady'." (SOUNDBITE) (English) DAUGHTER OF FORMER UK PRIME MINISTER MARGARET THATCHER, CAROL THATCHER, SAYING: "I would just like to say that I would feel like anyone else who has just lost a second parent. It's a deeply sad, and rather thought-provoking landmark in life. My mother once said to me: 'Carol, I think my place in history is assured.' The magnificent tributes this week, the wonderful words of President Obama to others from colleagues who once worked beside her have proved her right. An enormous personal thank you to all the people who have sent me messages of sympathy and support. These have given me strength. But I know this is going to be a tough and tearful week, even for the daughter of The Iron Lady. Thank you very much."
