A lock of hair - Marie will live forever.


Hidden in the folds of Marie’s letter was a lock of hair held with a ribbon.

It was an unbreakable link to her soul to her and to Melanie.

Written on the ribbon were the words.

Ne quittez pas ce monde avec la mémoire de ce que vous auriez pu faire. Mais laissez-le avec ce que vous avez fait.

Ne passez pas dans l’histoire avec un souvenir de ce que vous auriez pu être. Mais ce que tu étais.

Mélanie raconte mon histoire avec l'émotion de qui j'étais.

Je veux le monde après que je sois allé croire en ce qui peut être. Pas ce qui est.

Ne pleurez pas ce que nous avons perdu, mais célébrez ce qui est et ce qui peut être.

Toi et moi ma soeur; peut changer le monde!

Raconte notre histoire

{Don’t leave this world with the memory of what you could have done. But leave it with what you have done.

Don’t pass into history with a memory of what you could have been. But what you were.

Melanie tell my story with the emotion of who I was.

I want the world after I have gone to believe in what can be. Not what is.

Don’t mourn for what we have lost, but celebrate what is and what can be.

You and I my sister; can change the world!

Tell our story.}

Melanie held the lock of Marie’s hair in her hands. She understood. She was QUEEN.

Marie will live FOREVER
