Sisi was the first friend that I made upon my arrival to YABC Camp experience. Her warm smile and charming wit was hard to ignore. Full of life and always with a reason to celebrate. She was truly one in million of persons that I believe was beautiful both inside and out. My heart was filled and saddened on my discovery of Sisi death. Although she is no longer with us, my prayer is that she resting in a much better place.
In your time of bereavement, I hope that you find comfort as I have in the loving memories of being blessing to know the special person that Sisi was and the joy of life she share with many.
My prays are with you.

I´m sincerely saddened to hear about Sisi´s death. I remember her smile and joy that were part of her, I still remember her voice calling my name with that English accent that sounded funny, because in my language my name is pronounced different. But after the first time she didn´t forget it and how I forgot her name first!
And she participated always well in the activities that we did during the YABC training, encouraging people that were distracted and wanted to do other things. My condolences to his family that truly loved her! I hope that in this time of sorrow and mourning, you feel pride and satisfaction to have loved and lived close to a women so special!! God let her rest in peace!

Sisi was definitely a great motivator for the YABC training process. She joked a lot with everyone and was always with a beautiful smile despite the language issues. I had the opportunity to be in her the social mobilization group and she was a true leader organizing us for the dance and giving good ideas that made it a success.
She was very generous and kind and she was never bothered about anything. We will always remember her in our hearts.

Sisi had a great spirit of friendship, how not to remember her smile and her Scouts uniform.
My dear Sisi, you will live forever in our hearts.
I would to share my experience with Sisi in Haiti, Sisi and I had good conversations and I admired her fiery spirit, always willing to learn and know other people. She was indeed a bright star, very intelligent young lady, of whom I learnt a lot in the few time we spent together. I will always remember her the rest of my life.
Sisi, you were an excellent YABC leader, friend, counselor, who with your dedication, joy and enthusiasm made made yourself an unforgettable person. We shared many moments in this great experience. I will never forget you my YABC friend. Saddened by this news but remember you'll always be in our hearts. With much love, your friend
With Sisi from the start we had a beautiful friendship, with her joy and dynamism. The most important moment was one evening when we were talking for over 3 hours, with no language barrier and making me remember that sparkle that scouts have as she taught me knots that no-one knows better than the Scouts. I will certainly miss her a lot, let her soul rest in peace.
Siranouche Germain better known to us as Sisi was a warm person with a charming welcoming spirit. She knows how to make you feel relax and is open to all. Her spirit is encouraging , her words are inspiring and her presence is motivating. To us the English speaking we saw her as our bridge to the french speaking and the Haitians, and though she was not a red crosser she fit in well amongst us as our own. I never regret meeting her and she had a personnel touch to me "Leroy Jack". She was my smile, she was my spirit builder when am down and she taught me one great lesson(to be a friend you must first show yourself friendly), she was a friend indeed and in need. Sisi I will miss you greatly. Lord I thank you for allowing me to meet her.

I rember her the first day she came to the poening at the tent she was full of life with a bright smile ! Very friendly ! I also rember her lending me a pen because I did not have mine lol!! So generous ! After that she would alwys ask me are you okay ! Just making sure that I was ! I will miss her ! Forever her name will be remembered in the name of humanity !
Sisi was very high spirited and made you feel welcome. We bunked across from each other while I was there and she was very helpful and friendly to me especially when she realised that I was the only one that was not bilingual.
I loved her spirit and her personality and she always brought joy to others and made them feel welcome. She will be dearly missed.
