  9. AS I ponder my every day challenges to solve & I then I am able to share your daily exploits…you will be happy to know …..somehow …..challenges become Opportunities …..your Karma is infectious halfway around the world. Stay Safe, Bill as you continue your divinely inspired journey.

  10. Bill, I’m a retired teacher from Andersen School, where several of your grandchildren attended, and your daughters work or have worked. I have watched some of your past presentations you have presented to the students of Andersen. You’re a hero to many, and the best athlete I know. What an accomplishment to summit Everest, especially at the age of 72. What a role model you are. Congratulations and good luck on your descent. Ric Barth
