Close friends are continuing to assist Michelle O’Neil Puryear to bring her husband back to the U.S. Joe Puryear died tragically on Labuche Kang in Tibet on Tuesday. He was 37 years old. Puryear’s climbing blog is posting information about the retrieval effort and how friends can contribute. Readers can go to an article here in the Seattle Times for a tribute to Puryear and for more information on the climb.
