Mrs Degrace Cantave Latortue left us for a better world following treatment of a relatively short disease. She was full of life and for the one who knew her through our AMHE conventions, she would bring always her beautiful smile and her desire to ensure that her son Karl was performing well his duty. She had a deep love for our organization.
I met her with Karl and I felt instant respect for this matriarch. I recently saw her on a hospital bed with her will to live and care for her family. Karl as you know, is a devoted member of the AMHE who carried the duty of Treasurer at the Central Executive Committee..
I want to express to him and to the entire family, sincere condolences not only in the name of the entire AMHE Organization but also personally. Karl, your mother may have left this world to join her Creator, but she will be with us for ever. Her smile will remain notable and unforgotten. May she rest in Peace.

From having seen you with your adorable mother at our Conventions I know how strong were the bonds that attached the two of you together. I never could find the proper words to console a son who has lost his mom. But I can imagine how excruciating is the pain to your heart and how profound is your sorrow since October 10 is the 30th anniversary of the passing of my own mother.The consolation will come from reliving and cherishing all the close and dear moments that you have shared with her. You and your family will be in my thoughts and my prayers. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.
