Dear Friends and Family,
I am writing on behalf of my brother-in-law, Ken Burt. Many of you know Ken in different ways—as a devoted teacher and Forensics coach, a colleague, a theater buddy, an arts supporter, an old friend from Denver or a more recent friend in Alamosa, and as a brother, uncle, and step-dad—but I’ll bet that all of you can agree on one thing. Ken is one of those guys we all feel blessed to have in our lives. He’s funny and smart and kind and has a passion for just about everything, including my sister, Sheri. They married just last Thanksgiving after a whirlwind 14-year courtship.

Thank you everyone for your generosity and support. We are working on individual thank you letters, but until then we both say thank you!
Ken is riding a gentler roller coaster now a days, still some downs, but he is gradually making progress to better health and quality of life. One of our doctors used the analogy of a football team, where each player is talented and excellent and paid a million dollars, but until they learn to work as a team, they don't win many games! So Ken's two DNAs are learning to recognize and accept each other so they can work together. Though we are back in Alamosa after spending six months (!?!) in Denver, we still have many, frequent trips to Denver for medical care so we appreciate all your help!
