My father, Georges CAUSSANEL, thanks to the example he gave me, forged me a solid and precious character.
He transmitted to me, reluctantly, his disease which weakened me a lot from an early age, and from a genetic point of view, heart problems (from which he suffered in addition to tuberculosis) which manifested themselves on the late as far as I'm concerned.
The example of the moral qualities that were part of his personality strongly influenced me as soon as my maturity of mind allowed me to understand and assimilate it, and greatly contributed to forging what I have become.
He had honesty, righteousness, courage, patriotism, honor, justice, will and qualities of heart; it was very precious and beyond the physical problems. He also had faults, like all of us, but which were minimal compared to his qualities.
He was a beautiful person and those who knew him were able to testify to it.
I would like to thank the people who helped me in my research and who supported my approach concerning the development of this site.
In particular, SOLANGE, my wife, for her support and encouragement as well as for the suggestions and for the corrections made.
In priority Messrs Georges GUIRAL, nephew of Paul GUIRAL and his son Alain GUIRAL for their encouragement and their support.
