«Dear Mr. Barin Chaki,
I imagine the great shock it has been for you… I am Rose, Patrice’s wife and I remember you very well from our work at Mira Aditi. I thank you for your concern.
I would like to correct an important point of your letter. I will not go into details, but having lived these events myself I would like to tell you that Patrice was not asked to quit Mira Aditi. Patrice actually chose to leave because he was not at all keeping well.
I would like to add also that Patrice cherished Satprem and Sujata the most in his heart.
I wish to share with you the following extract of a touching and personal letter that he had left for me on June 29th 2006:
“…and my brotherly love to Satprem and Sujata. May they keep me in their heart.”
Those were Patrice’s last words.
May we always remember him.
