 15 December 2018 Tragic News for regular readers of Thollon.org - Those of you who have their wood supplied by Jean-Marc Gailey may appreciate knowing of the tragic and sudden death last night of his son Victor. Victor was just 24 and died in the early hours of this morning of a cardiac arrest whilst working on the pistes at the Swiss ski resort where he was employed as a driver of one of their snow machines. No doubt you will wish to join Thollon.org in extending our sympathy to Jean- Marc; to Valerie and to their family and close friends.
