This web page is in memory of our beloved Audrey Mestre, a great freediver and an even greater person...
Audrey, you will always be in our thoughts and in our hearts.
We love you!
Christmas is near. I decorated the house, for what? for whom? Every year during the past 18 years, I tell myself that I'm not going to decorate, I don't feel like it, and then I think of you, your joy every time we started to put Christmas on. We would do it together when you lived with us, and when you were studying in La Paz, we had to wait for you to put all the lights and decorate the tree. Then you left to live your life with Pipin, and you waited for us, you both waited for us to but the tree and decorate it. We visited several places because you wanted it bigger each year. We laughed, we joked that one day Pipin would have to open a hole in the roof of the house so the tree would fit. They were happy and careless times. And then everything changed and we had to learn to live our lives without all those small details that made us happy. It's tough, very tough, but we have no choice, life goes on and we have to live it as it is.
That's why today I want to tell you that we still miss you very much, that nothing has filled that emptiness you left behind when you went away, that you're still present in our daily lives, that I still would love to call you and tell you everything I do during my day, every news, like for example the fact that this year we met again with our friends from France, Emile and Gigi. Thanks to the new technology that allowed us to reconnect and converse with them about all the good times we spent in their company, all the weekend visits, all the games you played with their children, Steph and Fifi.
You will always be in our hearts and thoughts.
We love you, dear.
Your mom forever.
