”My poor, dear parents,

They are going to tear me away from the life you gave me and that I loved so much. It is infinitely hard for you and for us. I was lucky enough to know, before dying, that you were brave. Stay that way, especially my little mama, to whom I give all my love from my poor little heart.
My poor darlings, you know that I accepted the fight. I will be brave right up to the end. The war will soon be over. Despite everything you will be happy in peace, thanks to me a little bit. I want to return to Douchy (Loiret) next to grandpa and grandma. I would have wanted to live longer in order to love you a lot. Alas! I cannot! The surprise is bitter.”
