    Some 12/13 years ago ,a 17 or so year old young man approached us on the job site asking about the possibility of work, we direcected him to the office, & the boss gave him a a start .Fast forward to present day & after doing various jobs all very well he was taught to fall & over the last couple of years has become one of the most competent fallers I 've worked with. He rode a motor bike for work & pleasure, summer of 17 he toured Eastern Europe for his holidays & met a girl who obtained work in France & moved over to live with him ,they planned to marry. Yesterday they had an appointment to view a house & on the way back were hit head on by a drunk driver who was on the wrong side of the road. Eli was pronounced dead at the scene,Tebou passed away on the operating table in the hospital some hour after the accident, to both of you young good people.RIP your'e time should have been at a much later date;A sad period is ahead.

    When people get good enough, they are taken.

    When they are truly in love, they are taken together.

    A sad story Al. My condolences to all who cared for them.

    Guys, thanks all for your thoughts E &T have now been cremated & Eli's family have taken her remains back to Hungary T's' grandad has taken on the task of creating G of R in a apart of his garden that has a super view over the valley to the Pyrenees & is an area we worked quite often . The AH that caused all the heart break has appeared in court not only was he DUI but was also disqualified from driving the case has been transferred to a higher court

    It happens in this day and age for one reason - we tolerate it! If we made the punishment severe enough reasonable people would discipline themselves to stop driving drunk. Those who can't discipline themselves need to live in prison farms where they can support themselves but have no more access to motor vehicles. Do I feel sorry for drunks? No. Why should I?

    Lock 'em up! But make them support themselves!

    Tragic is the one word that expresses how this event makes me feel.
    I think back on my life 30+ years ago when I was in my 30's makes the saddness even worse.
    The things I did, the places I traveled to, the people I met along the way. It was a special time in my life.
    In the end, knowing that you were remembered and missed, is perhaps the greatest compliment to the life you've led.
