    Effectivement. Les mots manquent et nous sommes bien démunis pour dire notre sympathie et consoler, mais de l'autre coté du globe je peux vous assurer que nous pensons à vous et à votre chagrin. Toutes mes condoléances.

    I want to express my sympathy.

    But I also want to say that California just cracks me up.

    I'm sorry for your loss...

    ... And you kids seem to be getting Americanized very quickly!

    Today's quotation

    • In Paris, the purest virtue is the object of the filthiest slander.

        –Honoré Balzac (1799-1850), in Scènes de la vie privée

      À Paris, la vertu la plus pure est l'objet des plus sales calomnies.
