A PHOTO A DAY HELPS …… Day 191, Thursday

SWITZERLAND IN THE WINTER

We took my father, who was blind and aged 94, on a rail holiday to Switzerland in June 2007 which he enjoyed so much. He was delighted to visit Zermatt, just below the Matterhorn (above) where his parents had spent their honeymoon in 1905, just over a century before. We decided to do the same holiday in January 2011, a year after he died, to remember him and see how different it was in the winter. Here are some photos from that winter holiday.

  1. Lovely photos, Margaret. And what lovely associations…
    I think I remember your father – Clement? I seem to remember he left provision in his will to fulfil his commitment to the TESS student he was sponsoring?? I was very impressed.

    • Thank you. He did actually just finish sponsoring his student before he died. But he had a real gift for carpentry and DIY and told me to take all his lovely tools out to Emmanuel as he happened to be doing a vocational course in Carpentry and Joinery. That was just a lovely coincidence as he started sponsoring Emmanuel in S1 before he had decided what vocational course to do. I think the person you are thinking about was Bernard Pinnock who sponsored four girls and left provision for them in his will in case he died before they had finished. At least one of them hadn’t finished because she went to university, so her fees etc were all provided for, which was such a generous and forward-thinking thing to do. My father, Clement Pain, was active in the Uganda Church Association for many years – is that where you remember him from?
