RIP, just two days ago I was talking to him and yesterday I posted about him and his great heart. This man Ngima Dendi Sherpa the manager Happy Feet Mountaineers dedicated my entire stay at Everest to make sure I was good and will lack nothing. He was always asking me for how was I feeling and encouraging me every day. I had been talking to him all the time and during this hard times since he was sent to the hospital about a week ago. Today I was thinking to text him to see how he was doing and I opened my Facebook to find out that he has died from Covid-19. He did not make it. I will remember you as the man who made possible many great of the moments I spent in Nepal, specially during my climb, but I will also remember you as a friend. A friend who promised will come visit me in Edmonton this year… I guess you will and will be in my heart.”
