With your departure too fast and which should not happen, we, along with your big sister and your big brother, lose the company of a true ray of sunshine that devours life.
This is how the parents of one of the little victims of the Laval tragedy, Jessica Therrien and Nicolas David, address their little Shooting Star, Maëva, in a letter where they thank the population for the support received since the unspeakable event that will have made their little heart stop.
The days, according to her and in her company, were "too great" as only she knew so well how to say. She was capable of anything, equipped with her extraordinary physical abilities and her disconcerting alertness, continues the letter obtained by Radio-Canada.
