A Micheline et à la famille,
Nous n'avons pas eu le plaisir de connaître Mal, excepté par les propos de Yvette Michelin et son mari Jean Racine. Nous vous avons vu lors des funérailles de Jean, tout récemment. Nous avons été extrêmement surpris et désolés du départ précipité de Mal auquel rien ne vous préparait. Yvette nous a appris la très triste nouvelle. Après le départ de Jean, un autre est parti.
Vous avez toutes nos sympathies,
Louise Chrétien et Michel Racine
