Sad news from GLA

imageOne of our cooks at the main house,Eveline Faurisme, lost her husband in a bus accident Tuesday afternoon.  Her husband is a school bus driver for children in their small mountain community of Furcy.  He drives children down the hill to the larger village of Kenscoff every day. 

Thankfully, there were no children in his bus because he was on his way to picking up the children.  They are assuming that  the brakes failed.  The bus tumbled down the mountainside. He died at the scene of the accident.

Eveiyne in the blink of eye became a single mom with five children and the main wage earner in the family.  We are all very sad and send our prayers to her and the children.
