Alex, we were just on the Kentucky Scottish Weekend website to plan our annual trip to see you, and were shocked to find out what you've been going through. We love you dearly and are catching up on eight months of prayers and positive thoughts! We're thrilled to hear that you've made such remarkable progress and are finally home now.
Bill and I stumbled across the Kentucky event back in the early 90s quite by accident when we were down that way from Pekin, Illinois, for a college alumni event. It was you who got us hooked, though, and we've been back every year since and have scheduled vacations around the Detroit and Ohio games just to see you perform there. Our son Joe has heard you since before he was born and will surely miss his annual ritual - 15 years now! - of your presenting him with your name tag at the end of the Kentucky weekend. We've been planning a Scotland tour with you for his high school graduation present, and we'll hold you to it!
Thank you for all the joy you've given to your old and new fans through the years.
--Pam, Bill and Joe Ritter
