Ma très chère Françoise,
Tu as montré un courage extraordinaire devant la maladie. Cela ne m'étonne pas, et cela me rappelle la force de ta maman dont tu as hérité. Tu étais une amie joyeuse et généreuse. Je ne t'oublierai jamais.
My dearest Françoise,
You've been amazingly brave in front of illness. I am not surprised ; it reminds me of your mother's fortitude, which you've inherited. You were a joyful and generous friend. I will never forget you.

Dear Alan and family,
Your Françoise was a real treasure. So loving, so generous, so full of graces ! She loved you all, you were the center of her life. She was so concerned about you, so happy when you were happy, always ready to give you a hand if necessary, supportive, understanding ; she adored her grandchildren. I cannot think of a kinder soul. She found happiness in America, although I know she missed her family in Belgium. Please receive my condolences and profound emotion.
Marie-Claire Rohinsky
