Our successes and accomplishments on Apollo XVII, Danny, are because of people like yourself—our pride I hope is your pride cause you made it all happen. One of the greatest thing[s] about the entire program is the people you meet and the friends you make. Thank you for being both. Sure missed you out there on the ladder during the EVA prep and post!" The photo is framed to a slightly larger size. In overall fine condition, with slight toning to display and subtle fading to handwriting.
