"Every summer holiday we spent in dad's birthplace in the Atlas Mountains.
As I was the eldest son he occasionally took me aside to tell me that he absolutely wanted to be buried there.

After dad's fatal accident, we had to arrange his expatriation as soon as possible.
Thanks to the intervention of Cares-Assistance and AXA Assistance this was arranged within 48 hours."
