I was so shocked to hear about the passing of my friend, Dan Rossi.
Back in 2001, Dan hiked to Everest base camp with me and my climbing team. Blind like me, Dan showed his grit and positive mindset; it’s a long, rocky, high-altitude trail and Dan forged ahead every day with a smile on his face and with a sense of happiness and gratitude. However, he’d been a mentor of mine long before that.
