Ma chère Olivette. Je viens d'apprendre le départ de ton cher Gilles. Il est allé rejoindre Lisa. Maman Marie l'a serré dans ses bras et je suis certaine que Nelson aussi faisait parti du comité d'accueil la-haut. Je te garde dans mes prières ainsi que ta belle famille. Bon courage.

All my thoughts for your family. I worked with Gill for many years and I never have worked with a more gentle, hardworking and honest person. Gill was one of a kind, God put a lot of work into him. Pete. I thought the world of your father and he taught me so much about people.
