Long Description:
[FR] Brassens fut inhumé non pas au cimetière marin de Sète, mais dans le caveau familal du cimetière du Py, juste au-dessus de l’étang de Thau. Il y est enterré au côté de Joha Heiman, surnommée « Püppchen », le grand amour de sa vie, celle qui lui inspira sa non-demande en mariage... Pour le 15 e anniversaire de sa mort fut planté derrière la sépulture, entre deux cyprès, un pin parasol. Au pied de l’arbre, une oeuvre scellée du peintre sétois Pierre François, sur laquelle on peut lire un extrait de la fameuse “Supplique...” : « Est-ce trop demander sur mon petit lopin. Plantez je vous en prie une espèce de pin. Pin parasol de préférence ».
