Letter to Monique
THE ONE WHO MADE ME KNOW NANA
It’s with an extreme sadness that I must resign myself to accepting your departure. Today, a swirl of memories re-appears in me; Nana Mouskouri and The Little Prince of Saint-Exupéry that you made me discover when I was child. And of course our recent appointments at the café, at the restaurant and at the cinema. What so beautiful moments of sharing!
The next outings will be tough. I will miss your good humour and your complicity. Be sure that I carry you in my heart. Of you, I keep the image of a generous, conciliatory, strong and a courageous woman. Sleep in peace, you, the friend, the aunt, the almost sister. It’s just a goodbye. Don’t forget me.
Your nephew Stéphane
