Of course, on your most important day instead of checking an update from you, I was stuck at work... So now is the time to scream: CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is so unbelievable! I am very happy you made it and that you are insane enough to try to do it again! I hope you don't though, as there are other mountains to climb. Or maybe we can use all you energy to fight for peace. But we;ll talk when y ou get back.

Even though it's not ur voice, it's soooo good 2 hear a voice from the mountain. Take it slow coming down, so no 1 else takes a fall! It sounds like u all experienced something that not many people get 2--never forget what you've just accomplished, & whenever life seems tough, always remember that YOU R TOUGHER!! Can't wait 2cu.
