Ken is in the hospital right now being treated for ALS, which he has been quietly battling for 8 months. His son, Neil Aitken, has posted a note on the GenEd blogsite here with news of his father's condition. Neil also posted a note to the APG mailing list saying:
"I have enjoyed immensely our association and the opportunity to meet so many fine professional genealogists from across the continent. And though I will no longer be posting to the list, I will when I can read your comments and messages."
I am hoping and praying that Ken can recover a bit from his current condition and continue to impress and inspire us with his intelligence, honesty and sense of humor on his blog. His voice is unique in the genea-blogging universe and we need to continue hearing it.
Ken - please know that I am praying for your recovery - may God bless you richly.
