But days would add up to months, years and decades. During that time that Limbrick learned to play the piano.
?Jesus taught me,? said Limbrick. ?I never really had music lessons or nothing. So everything that I know, you know, I just kind of know it.?
In turn, Limbrick gave music lessons to his fellow inmates, and in some cases, he performed for them.
In 2010, before Gov. Bill Ritter left office, the rest of Limbrick?s sentence was wiped away.
On July 1, 2011, Limbrick was released from prison on parole.
KRDO asked him if he thought it was fair that he was free to do as he pleased, while his mom didn?t have the same luxury.
Limbrick responded in a roundabout way by saying, ?The truth of the matter is that the freedom that I have has absolutely nothing to do with my ability to walk around.?

And my sisters have always been there for me. And you know, I?ve been there for them. We?ve been there for each other.
