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
