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!

My dear child,

I start my letter asking you for forgiveness. This is the first time in 19 years that I let the anniversary of your passing go away without writing you a letter. I have been thinking about writing this letter since August, but if I had written it then, I would have felt like I was getting rid of a task, which I am not. So I thought about writing it while in France, except that I was quickly caught up in the whirlwind of vacations, outings to visit family, friends we hadn't seen in 2 years, without a calendar under our eyes, or on what day we're. I know this is no excuse, to prove, on the 12th I remembered to light a candle for you. So why haven't I remembered the letter I write to you on every important date in your life? However, I was happy to know that during all these holidays, at least until now, you have been very present in our daily lives. You have not forgotten us and surely wherever you are you should smile when you see my anguish, because surely you must be thinking "but mom, it doesn't matter!" And all this accompanied by a beautiful smile. I know all that, but you know me as well as I know you, and therefore we both know that I blame myself for this forgetfulness and that it will haunt me for a long time.

My love, you know that you are and will always be present in my heart and in my mind. I am very happy to have sensed your presence continuously during our stay and during our travels. Thank you my treasure for this unconditional fusion that always unites us, despite everything that separates us.

We must remain very united. You know that you are and will be forever, my reason for living.
I love you my sweetheart. I love you and I will love you forever.
Your mom for life.
