5280 (Denver City Magazine) featured Barry in their June 2010 issue in an article titled "A Page of Reality."  Read below.

Imagine that you've been married to the love of your life-the one person who completes you-for 20 years.  You're only 57, still in the full throes of your career, until one day your world implodes with a single diagnosis: Your partner has early-onset Alzheimer's disease.  You're forced to watch that person slip away-away from life, away from herself, and away from you.  This is the reality for Denver's Barry Petersen, an Emmy Award winning CBS News correspondent, and the author of Jan's Story (Behler Publications, June).  In a painfully true rendering of the couple's tale, Petersen takes his reader through his wife Jan's diagnosis, progression, and heartbreaking submission to Alzheimer's as he pours himself into the role of caregiver.  Ultimately, he explains his struggle to let go of Jan and seek the companionship of another, even as his wife continues to live physically.  His account is one of survival-part memoir and part meditation on what it means when, as the book suggests, forever has an expiration date. -JD
