    (Veille= jour qui précède un jour donné, jour avant) and (Surveille = Avant-veille ou jour qui précède la veille)

    Veille would mean the day before, example if the person past away on monday night at 11 pm and on the tuesday they tell you he is death la veille then it is the day before. But if he past away on monday night at 11 pm and ont the wednesday they thell you he is death la surveille. Hope this will hep you,

    Sorry for my english, I am french speaking !
