Kelly Owen Burk was born with Down syndrome in 1952. He taught his family to slow down, smile more, laugh often, and embrace life fully. Kelly would impact others far beyond the town of three hundred he was born into. This book is a collection of stories about a man who defied all odds despite the limitations placed on him at birth. This is Kelly's story.
In Burgers, Coffee, and a Smile, Jordan Burk shares personal stories and observations about his uncle Kelly, the strength of family and friends, and how our perceptions about time affect how we approach mortality. Thoughtful and moving, but with Jordan's trademark sense of humor, this book provides a vehicle for reflection about our lives, loves, and losses. As you learn through Jordan's journey and maybe your own, life is not always easy when you have someone totally dependent on you, but every person God places in our lives has something to teach us.
