Pierre, tu as fait parti de ma vie d'ados... et as été un instrument qui a formé une partie de moi (comme celle de plusieurs d'entre nous). Une partie qui est devenue avec les années une fondation solide et immuable.
Merci d'avoir été là!

"To Danielle, who I have never had the chance to meet. Pierre was a good friend who I had lost touch with over the years. I was unaware that he was out on the West Coast. Last I saw Pierre was judging with him at a contest in Quebec, or maybe it was Ontario. Of all the people I have known over the years, he seemed to have changed the least. I will miss him. My thoughts go with you."
