Condolence message delivered by President Aline Hanson at Mrs. Illidge’s funeral service

My dear colleague of the territorial council, Jean-Philippe Richardson and your family, we are all gathered this afternoon in the church of Grand Case to accompany your grandmother Thérèse Antoinette Illidge to her last home and I would like, with these few words, to wish you and your family all my comfort and sympathy in this difficult time.

Your grandmother Antoinette has worked 22 years for the Commune of Saint-Martin, from 1982 to 2003, she was assigned to the cleaning of the primary school in Grand  Case, a hard and precious job to the benefit of our children.

You know my commitment to the work provided for our youth… Antoinette contributed – in her own way – to the well-being of our children in the school of Grand Case, because she worked every day to give the pupils a clean classroom, a healthy environment, for them to study in the best conditions. It is very important and I am very sensitive to this particular job done by our staff.

Antoinette retired from the Commune in 2003, and her colleagues keep a very good memory of her, and I know they all associate today with your sorrow.

Please allow me in my name and on behalf of all my colleagues of the territorial council of Saint-Martin to convey you our sincere condolences and the expression of our perfect consideration.

May you find peace and comfort in the memories you have shared with you.

May her soul rest in peace. I thank you.
