      Aux enfants et petits-enfants de Francis,
      Toutes mes condoléances. Jean et moi nous aimions beaucoup Mary-Jane et Marcel. Ils étaient d’ailleurs venus nous visiter à Dundee quelques semaines avant la mort de Jean. Je pense qu’après Avoir tant souffert, il doit être bien heureux de retrouver sa bien-aimée. Bon courage à vous tous. Louise
