Ma chère Debbie et toute votre famille, mes pensées vous accompagnent dans ces moments sûrement très difficiles. Je n’avais pas vu mon ami Jean depuis un long moment mais je pensais à lui quand même depuis que j’avais appris sa maladie. De beaux souvenirs de mon voyage en auto avec Jean de Québec-Edmonton-Québec au printemps 1975 me viennent en tête. Mes plus sincères condoléances à vous Tous. Bisous et accolades.
