The following is a letter from Vishnu the headmaster at Hindu Vidapeth Nepal schools, in Kathmandu, Nepal. Back, in 1998, my first trip to Nepal, I got involved with helping the children of a family (Narayan Panthi) go to the U.S. for treatment of an exotic disease, XP or xeroderma pigmentosum (A rare hereditary defect of the enzyme system that repairs DNA after damage from ultraviolet rays, resulting in extreme sensitivity to sunlight and a tendency to develop skin cancer.) Of the five children, four of them had this horrible affliction, causing them to have to live in the dark (sunlight worsens the situation). One of them, Rajesh, the oldest, practically died in my arms!

"Dear Hutch
Namaste !

I am very happy to hear back from you. Thank you so much for your wishes. I also again wish you a very happy and fulfilling New Year. May 2016 and the years ahead be the years of cooperation, understanding, harmony, love, peace and fearlessness. Have a great day.

I had a very lovely time in the US visiting some beautiful places and meeting lots of old and new friends. I have really returned home with great experiences of your country. So I would like to request you to go back to your home country at least for a few weeks to see how it is now as you have been away from the US for years.

I was so happy to meet the children of the Panthi family – Roshan, Santoshi and Parbati. They live in NY. Roshan is married and has two lovely children and runs his own business. Parbati with skin cancer really touched my heart with her service and care. She seems quite happy being in the US where she is receiving all support, help and care. I am very impressed to have seen how she has maintained her health. Santoshi works in a hospital in NY and doing very well. She is also got married with a very popular perosn Dr. Raju Adhiakari, who is now one of the most successful trainers in Nepal. And, Gokul is back to Nepal and running a mobile shop in his own house, where those days we used to have meetings to organize everything to send out the Panthi family to the US. Most amazing thing is that he got married with a lovely girl and is now even blessed with a cute son. Narayan Panthi and his wife (children's parents) are both in Nepal and fine. Narayan Panthi is very much involved with social works and keeps travelling in Nepal. As a whole, this family is now very well settled. And, this family is indeed indebted to you. Without your love, determination and support I think the huge project to send this family out to the US would have never been possible. I really salute your contributions. What is said is that God never comes himself, rather he sends out good friends to support whenever is needed. Truly speaking you are the one as a true spirit behind the success of this great project.

Where are you these days? I hope you are very happy and taking care of yourself very well.

With warmest regards,

Your memory is impressive! You were a sort of “Bob Dylan of sports television”…not satisfied with the status quo…constantly interested in breaking the mold. You were the one who hired me…and were, for sure, a great first boss…Chuck and Roone attention and influence came later. Will never forget, and always appreciate.

"You have taught us about physical challenges and that nothing is insurmountable!"

You have always been a go getter! You are one of a kind in the best sense. You look 20 years younger, filled with vim, vigor and vitality. I am proud of you.

'Thank you for being who you are and the way you think!' 

'An amazing life story!'
Mary Lee (my sister)

Perhaps the distraction was caused by my admiration of what you do and your quality of man. An example for the men of this planet.

I am proud to have shared a few moments with you. Thank you.
