Ma chère Marjolaine et famille,
Nos sympathies les plus sincères! J’ai, Georgette, tellement de beaux souvenirs de ta maman. Elle était toujours accueillante, charmante et chaleureuse envers moi lors de mes nombreuses visites è la ferme. ‘The good old day!’ Que le Seigneur te donne le courage nécessaire pendant ce temps difficile. C’est toujours si triste de perdre une maman.
