A Special Alp, Saanen, Switzerland

A Special Alp



Psalm 121, I look to the mountain; Does my strength  come from mountains? No, my strength comes from God, who made heaven and earth and  mountains. He did not let him stumble.         Message Bible


Psalm 121 became a symbol of the courage and faith the underpinning of my husband, Werner’s strength  throughout  his will to survive esophageal cancer.

Werner climbed and skied down this 6000′ Alp pictured. When our oldest son, Stefan was 6 years old, he climbed the Rublihorn with his dad, and proud to sign climbers book on the summit.

Werner’s  3 nieces, Beatrice, Elaine, and Andrea along with their husbands fulfilled my special wish to spread Werner’s ashes on the summit of The Rublihorn and among the Edelweiss.  I will always be grateful.
