My Dear and To All Of Your Friends, Congratulations! Wow! It is so exciting to follow your accomplishments and endeavors. I have loved revisiting places in my mind through your descriptions. Your Africa experience will enhance your lives forever. It is, after all, the “Cradle of Mankind”. I am sure you all feel a special connection, or you wouldn’t even be aspiring to do this. Take care of yourselves and experience wonder. Our prayers are with you. Love, Aunt JoAnne

Laird told me that the Meru climb included horrendous weather. Great going to push your way through and bag that one! Now Kilimanjaro remains, and I am confidenthtat you and your team will will inspire eachother and come away with another victory for yourselves as well as the African people. Congratulations on all that you have done, and we can’t wait to see you in NY and hear about the whole adventure.
