McCandless' parents left a Bible in the bus when they visited one year from the date of his death in July 1993. His mother left a note that says, in part, "I wondered briefly if it would be hard to enter your last home. The wonderful pictures you left in your final testament welcomed me in and I'm finding it difficult to leave. I can so appreciate the absolute joy in your eyes reported by your self-portraits."
