  3. Dear Gene: Ree and I Offer our heartfelt condolences in your loss of Ken. We have many memories of all the times we spent together during our college days in Pueblo. I especially have many fond memories of days growing up together on the East side. Ken and John Briggs and I were sometimes called the three musketeers because we spent so much time together.
