    my wife

    If I could ask you to take a minute to remember my wife Justene who passed away on 5th Sept , she was the most beautiful French woman you ever saw, with the kindest heart of anyone I ever knew . She fought so hard against the breast cancer but was taken from us at 10.28 in the morning , so if you could spare a minute for her I would thank you. 'Dans l'amour il n'y a aucun mort'
