Dear Katia and Jean
There are not many words when
the silent is too loud.
When a space will remain
empty for the eternity.
But there is consolation for
those who understands that every man has the right and the duty to fight
for his goals,
to do what he believes is
to push the human limits
higher than before.
Those men will never die,
because dies who quits his
who remains moveless in this
Jean Christophe will always
be alive in the hearts and minds of everyone who understands that, who admires
the huge dimension of his goals.
Our pain will slowly heal by
remembering that he rests where he decided to live, where he decided to be.
Now he is the mountain, and
the mountain is he,
the Makalu has never been
while Jean Christophe walked
through the path to heaven that he chose.
Many have sent us letters and e-mails on Jean-Christophe
Lafaille. All are welcome to send in comments and letters... Send email to
We will pass them on to Katia and the family and publish
