Message from Vicki Johnson

It is with a breaking heart that I write to let you know that Ken passed away at 11:40 last night.  His stay at Trillium Woods was short (11 hours) as they had to bring him to North Memorial Robbinsdale at 5 AM yesterday.  His oxygen level was dropping and x-ray showed pneumonia in both lungs.  They had put him on a ventilator and feeding tube, etc.  I remembered that he had signed a DNR 2 years ago so after they received it, everything was removed.  Sweet Ken had thought of everything to make my life easier.  How hard it would have been for me to have to make that decision !!!!   I am so very thankful for the love and care he gave to me every single day of our 24 years together.  How lucky am I that we found each other.  We will have a celebration of life as soon as it is safe to do so.  PLEASE share this sad news with others who are not listed here.  I so appreciate all your love and prayers for us the past week.  Ken had many health issues to deal with but he handled them with grace and dignity and always with that great smile on his face.

For background: Ken fell on July 8 resulting in needing a hip replacement.  The surgery was successful. 
He was transferred to Trillium Woods rehab on July 13.
