Especially Virginie hocq, upset at the desk. "I worked with Annie, but I never dared to tell this great lady that I loved her very much, began the comedian, after having told a funny anecdote about their meeting. Out of modesty, out of fear of embarrassing, out of stupidity. You have to tell people that you love them. I never dreamed of saying to Annie, 'Thank you. Thank you for what you have done in me, as a woman and a funny artist. "
Virginie Hocq continued by speaking for the last time to Annie Cordy and her niece : “Thank you for making me meet Michèle (Lebon, the artist's niece, editor's note), Mimi. So Mimi, I think it's the right time for my words to resonate even louder, longer, to tell you that I love you. That I love you terribly, very much. Say thank you, thank you for having maintained around Annie precious moments, made of gatherings, joy, birthday parties, thank you for having created with Annie wonderful encounters, close friendships ». Sobs in life, Virginie hocq concluded his speech with poignant words. “We will take over with you. To continue to enjoy the coming day, launched, upset, the humorist. I love you, we love you. Thank you Annie ”. To RTBF a few days after the announcement of the death ofAnnie Cordy, her friend had already paid her a heartbreaking tribute.
Virginie Hocq: "She will always be there in the end"
“It's a great chance for us to have lived all these moments and a great sadness because obviously, we never foresee it. We know that there will undoubtedly be an end at some point but no one could imagine that, confided Virginie hocq. Whether it is the public with a close relative of his family, we can not imagine an end and yet it happens but here we see that for the public, it will always be timeless and always present and it's really nice. We have the impression that there will be no end. Yesterday we heard the Belgians sing Annie Cordy. It will always be there eventually. " The comedian continued: "And that's why our job is magic and that's why she chose it and she did it well." You will be able to watch the films and listen to the songs, you will be able to learn a lot more things because his life cannot be reduced to a few television appearances. It is something huge that she lived and as an artist I can say that I hope for that ”.
