Congratulations on this remarkable accomplishment. You set a goal and saw it through. That is a most admirable quality. You set a fine example for your children, grandchildren and all of those you meet.
I'm honored that I was able to share a part of the AT trail with you. During my short time on the trail, I saw in you the unshakable determination needed to go the distance. Despite many obstacles, you showed the grit to keep going and shared with us an amazing journey. You inspire me everyday to live with passion and never quit.
I hope to be a part of your next adventure. Congratulations and welcome home!
