|Madame Susanne ASSOLENT née SJÖQVIST|
Dear Sussie. You were the elder sister in the Sjoquist family who came to our little neighbourhood in Sweden in 1977. Our parents had dinners together and I have a lot of bright memories from that time. It was a warm and nice period in my life. Little sister, Eleonor and I had the same age and went to school together, we were part of the same ”gang”. You were always protective about your little sister. When you got Maccie I came to spend a lot of time in the stables with you summer and wintertime and we had a lot of fun. I often came along with you when you went to different traw challenges with Maccie. Later on, I went to Paris alone and came to visit you in Argenteuil, where you stayed at Alains parents house with your children, big sister and adorable Mikaela and the little baby Johan at that time. I felt so welcome and surrounded of so much happiness with Alain and the children. You had a lot of optimism and spread good energy around you, even if I remember times where hard, because you waited impatiently for a new house. Later on, in the 90’s I lived not far away from you in Seine et Marne, and me and my son Nils came to visit you two or three times. When I was alone at Christmas or New Years Eve of course I was welcome to celebrate with you! We had a great time and I got sick from the Oysters, remember..? Or something...? You were so generous and curious to get to know my little boy who overwhelmed with energy, always. I remember your special kindness and attention. You even arranged a hike for Nils once on one of the horses that you went specially to borrow from someone in the neighbourhood.
It’s so difficult to describe the feelings about that you are no longer here. The deep sorrow I feel for Alain, Mikaela, Johan, Sasha, the grand children and for Eleonor, Allan and the children, the whole family, are illimited. My love and thoughts are with you always.
