Janine Fauquet sent this message to blogger friends of her husband Michel:
J’ai l’immense tristesse de vous annoncer le décès de Michel.
Je vous remercie de l’intérêt et de l’affection que vous lui avez porté avec vos messages et commentaires au long de ces dernières années…
Vous étiez importants pour lui.
I understand enough French to have read this message and to have learned that this friend just died. He was a Christian, a family man, an educator, a gardener, a writer of a charming blog about his life in Amiens, Normandy. I will miss him, as will anyone who had the good fortune to follow his postings.
For those of you who don’t understand French, Janine’s announcement in English is:
I am very saddened to announce the passing of Michel.
Thank you for the interest and affection you have shown him with your messages and comments over the past few years…
You were important to him.
RIP Michel Fauquet
