Ladies and gentlemen, members of the family of the deceased affected by this bereavement. Dear brothers and sisters and friends who sympathize with us. It is with infinite sorrow that I stand as "spokesperson" of the first generation in front of this painful event that unites us all together today to pay a final tribute to the late memory of our mother Marie Thérèse Laurette Henry after a long illness courageously endured.

Our mother, Marie Thérèse Laurette Henry died on Monday, July 12th, 2021 at 5:00 PM in her residence at Sunrise, FL at the age of 93 and a half and I can say that she was one of the most robust. Who would love to live to that age?

Who was Marie Thérèse Laurette Henry? Born on December 14, 1927 in Port-Au-Prince and married in 1944 to Sieur Leclerc Legentus who was a school director in Léogane du Cóté de Mathieu, died in September 1989. She gave birth to 11 children and lost 3 of them. Our mother was a shopkeeper and farmer. She was very religious, loved God more than anything else. She was a fighter, a good mother to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren who are here this afternoon and ready to testify. Finally, I have a lot to say, but unfortunately the departure of Marie Thérèse Laurette Henry has left a great void that no one can fill. What else? To whom all God loses still remains.

To all my brothers and sisters, sons-in-law and daughters-in-law, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, friends and allies afflicted by this grief, may God give you the courage to overcome everything because he gives strength to the one who is tired and replenishes the vigour of the one who fails.

May God bless you.
