Message from James A Michel, Former President of the Republic of Seychelles, to the Berlouis and Larue Families.
Tue, 03 April 2018
It is with utmost regret and deep sorrow that I learnt earlier today of the death of Ogilvy Berlouis.
Ogilvy was a colleague and friend of mine. Together, we shared many moments of tribulation, but also of joy and a deep sense of accomplishment for all that we managed to do together for our Seychelles.
Ogilvy was a true patriot who always had the interests of our country at heart. His intelligence, his infectious sense of humour, his devotion to duty but also the discipline he imposed upon himself and on his subordinates never failed to impress us.
We have lost a foremost officer and a gentleman. He may be gone but we shall never forget him and shall continue to honour his memory.
In this time of intense grief and bereavement, my thoughts are with Marise, thei children of Marise and Ogilvy, the Berlouis and Larue families and all their loved ones of. May they cherish forever the memories that he leaves behind, the love and affection that he surrounded you with.
May Ogilvy repose in peace.
