Red face help- lost jib halyard

In my haste to get the boat stripped and ready for Irene - this novice sailor lost the jib halyard - it went right up and out of the roller furling track and to the top of the mast.

I have somone who has agreed to climb my mast and retrieve the halyard - but then how do I rethread it into the track?

I had the yard put the jib on for me in the spring as this is my first year sailing so I really had no idea how the thing attached.

I have a Catalina 27 tall rig.

Thanks for any good advice!
