          Biil, thanks so much for finding this and posting. Nikki's spirit was evident in his posts here. I'm so glad he's being memorialized in this way by his fellow climbers.

            Tho' much is taken, much abides; and though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are; one equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will; to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
