IciHaiti - Obituary : Michaëlle Craan alias «Manman Jacmel» the light of Jacmel, passed away
"[...] it is difficult to talk about Jacmel without mentioning the one that is almost considered as a monument of the city. She took part in all the activities likely to put the city forward and shone with her love of the region, which moreover returned it to her well.
In addition to being an emblematic personality of the area and a fervent local tourism activist, Michaelle Craan is also a former collaborator of the Ministry of Tourism of Haiti who is doubly bereaved by this loss.
To her family, her friends, all the inhabitants of Jacmel and colleagues of the deceased, the Ministry of Tourism sends its most sincere sympathy. She will have marked her passage and left a legacy that the MOT undertakes to continue to perpetuate.
Legends don't die!
So rest in immortality dear Michaëlle !"
