God? Because you are good, you are kind, and if one had to count the number of your good deeds and kindnesses one would never finish; God? It is you who command, you who are justice, you who reward the good and punish the bad. God? After this I can say that I will never forget you. I will always think of you, even in the last moments of my life. You can count on it. What you are to me is something that I can't express, because you are so good. You can believe me. God? Thanks to you I had a beautiful life before, thanks to you I was spoiled and had beautiful things that other people don't. God? After this, I ask you only one thing: bring my parents back, my poor parents, protect them (even more than me) and let me see them as soon as possible; bring them back one more time. Ah! I used to be able to say that I had such a wonderful Maman and such a wonderful Papa. I trust you so much that I say thank you in advance.
