I knew my father, Émile, what he was doing, his way of thinking. I heard , a little, of someone named Arthur, but I never knew much about him…
I even saw him when I was just a kid. I heard nothing about Onésime, Pierre or Paul…What were they doing? What was their way of thinking? A big mystery and no one to ask those questions to.

On March 2nd, I was diagnosed with a prostate cancer at an intermediary stage. As one would say, it’s not a very good news because sometimes the bones could be affected at such level.
However, the doctor has confirmed to-day that the last results are very encouraging. The cancer is still confined to the prostate. There are many inconveniences related to surgery, but at my age, ity will allow me to stay alive close to the ones I love.
