Shocked by the brutal death of her son, the host had shared her pain on her social networks by paying a vibrant tribute to the one who was the most important person in her life: “Tonight, at midnight, my little angel, my toothbrush thief, my little lion with such a gentle look, flew off to the stars after thirteen days of struggle.

A particular day
This April 2, World Autism Day, Églantine Eméyé paid a new tribute to her son Samy by sharing a photo of him as well as a few words about this day so important for all people suffering from autism: “In this #journeemondialedelautisme I think of my little angel Samy….the words are stuck in my throat. But I know he would have been proud of today’s mobilization. »
Above the photo of Samy, we can read a few words from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry: “The stars are lit so that everyone can one day find their own”. Words that obviously resonate strongly for the bereaved mother.
On Instagram, under each of her posts, Églantine Eméyé can count on dozens and dozens of words of support in this particularly difficult time for her and her loved ones. She also explained that she had already returned to work in order to clear her mind as much as possible in these cases.
