    Partie trop tôt…partie trop jeune…ou partie tout simplement…mais pourquoi elle?? Trop de questions… en regardant le ciel, on se dit qu’ils veillent sur nous… On pense souvent à eux…En regardant les étoiles… la lune… une date…une chanson.. une odeur… une photo…. et une larme qui s’échappe… En mémoire de Berthe qui nous a quittées. Elle nous manquera car elle a marquée nos cœurs a jamais. Mes condoléances à toutes la famille, particulièrement à Tonio et ses enfants
