Terrible news from Nepal. My sherpa brother and partner in khotang namgyal sherpa has died returning from everest summit. His body is 600 meters from the north side summit. There are no words to express my sorrow. This is not just a personal loss for me, but a loss to humanity. I am trying to do what I can for the family here. The dzi foundation has been kind enough to make arrangements for Khotang and arrange help so we can continue our work. Namgyal would want this and this is the best way to honor his legacy. our projects will continue and I am more determined than ever.
