He was an excellent mountaineer.A tough body with a gentle soul. He was very well known in that circle and I thought maybe your paths had crossed. In fact they still could if you ever climb there as he is still up there somewhere.

    @@@dazzle,,,,,,,,,,,thank you so much for your email you folks back are the best and I MEAN IT! Ive lived in many places and dislike california the most why? Because it lacks people like you all, and thats a fact out here no one has the time to treat anybody right,,,im sick of it so the next best thing to do is reach out to some real people and i found it i hope to god that none of you good ones stay around a while . You and tori deserve the best that life has to offer, because of who you are! I hope tori is enjoying herself over there and she soaks it up,,,,so everyone needs to drop into fridays live events tommorrow or as a matter of fact ill start it off tonight/30 minutes .
