    Je voudrais dire à Geneva, Yvon Jr., Paul et Francine que mes pensées sont pour vous et vos familles. Je n’ai malheureusement pas connu tellement votre mère. Depuis 1985, mon travail de journaliste sportif m’a surtout mené à parler à votre père de temps en temps. Par contre, les rares fois où j’ai pu la voir à l’oeuvre furent suffisantes pour me rendre compte à quel point elle était spéciale. Le 15 octobre 2008, lors d’une conférence de presse visant à lancer l’exposition consacrée à Yvon, de même qu’au début de la série de 21 chroniques dans L’Acadie NOUVELLE, Thérèse m’avait carrément scié les jambes par sa force de caractère et par sa facilité à communiquer ses opinions. C’est ce jour-là que j’ai vraiment réalisé que Thérèse était le miracle qui avait permis à Yvon de réaliser autant d’exploits.

    Dear Robert Richard,

    Thank you for informing me.

    Due to a technical problem I could not leave a message on
    and a family thing interfered my immediate response.

    Please do pass on my reaction to the Durelle Family.

    It is with deep sadness that I learned from the death of this kind lady who with her legendary husband provided the ingredients for one lovely Sunday afternoon early June 2002.

    I was on my way from Boston to Canastota NY (New York) for the Induction weekend of the International Boxing Hall of Fame. Quite a detour, but it was worth every bit of effort.

    To be with that lovely couple was a highlight for me. Since then they’re in my heart.

    Please please do tell the family of my sincere feelings. When I received a signed copy of « the Fighting Fisherman », many years ago, a picture of the family was included.

    Where do the younger Durelle’s live? Mrs. Theresa once told me she wanted to move to Moncton. Robert you have the pictures of me with the Champ outside their home at 5374 Route 117 in Baie Sainte Anne.

    Please let the Durelle’s know that their parents were highly respected and the memory of my visit will be treasured for ever.

    Anyone with a sense for great boxing history would have loved to be there. But I was there. Memories that will never fade away.

    In Yvon’s memory book is a letter from Gerd (or Gerdie) Riethenauer from Frankfurt Germany. I saw that letter. He was the best Friend I ever had. Gerd died all of a sudden some 6 years ago. He was only 62.

    Some say I’m an encyclopedia of boxing, but Gerd could beat me as they say « Six days a week and twice on Sunday » We were both 100% into the history of our great sport in which Yvon Durelle plays such an important part.

    Those were the days. Forget about those overpriced so-called world champions. In each category you have 4 or 5 who claim to be THE world champion. Gerd knew better and so do I.

    Those who met him agree that the Durelle from the boxing is just a part. Being with him and his wife meant so much more to me.

    May the Good Lord bless this sweet couple with eternal rest.

    Sincere regards, please stay in touch.
