Kenny is 48 years old, 15 years older than me.

About 2 yrs ago he called me and told me he was coming over.
I had heard through the grapevine that he had been seen with a woman.
Not a big deal, except that we had never known Kenny to have a girl-friend.

I asked him if he was with his girl-friend and he said "Yes", I asked him
what her name was, he said "Crystal". At that point, I called
everyone in the immediate family and informed them that Ken had a girl-friend.

Everyone was astonished. My Dad told me that Ken had at _one time_ had a girl-friend overseas, when he was about 17. Please understand, girl-friend(or boy-friend for that matter) didn't ever enter into anyone's mind with regard to Kenny, he was just Ken and happy that way.

Ken and Crystal have been very happy. I moved Ken into Crystals house and we (I at least) expected a marriage would come of it (eventually).

Ken and Crystal went to Hawaii last weekend. Tuesday was Ken's birthday. Wednesday they were swimming and Crystal (from what I understand, I do not have all the details yet) inhaled some water. She was revived by the lifegaurds. While talking to the lifegaurds, she collapsed and went comatose.

She is comatose now.

I hurt for my brother, and I hurt for Crystal.

If you are a praying sort, please think of these two people who met mid-way through thier lives and found happiness together.

If you aren't (I don't have that kind of relationship with what I call God)please hope.

I am sorry to bring a bummer on you all.

P.S. Kenny and Crystal are both very active in local theater and they would be mad if I didn't help to promote it: Go support your local theater!

I hope she pulls through and that they can both be together again. I know what it's like to find your "one" other and luckily I'm married to her. They're in our prayers and thoughts.

I'm so sorry to hear that; I hope for the best for Crystal and Ken. My prayers go out for them.

And on the local theater note; go see an open-air production some summer evening, catch a local dinner theater some night, heck even go see a high school play. Drama geeks are cool :)

Thanks for posting bro, I was going to last night but couldn't think to compose.

Thank you to all of TRT for you're thoughts and prayers.

As my bro said - we, as a family were waiting for a wedding date, Ken was even kidded on his b-day by our other bro who asked him if this wasn't a secret honeymoon.
As of now, we can only hope and pray


Again thank you all, Lee

Sorry to hear about your brother and Crystal, they say that God works in mysterious ways. I'm sure that she'll pull through. My thoughts and prayers are with the two of them and the rest of your family in this trying time.

Whoa.... that's terrible...

I used to work in an ERU/BTU with coma patients... They may be sleeping, but they are very much aware of what is going on around them... Remind your brother to speak to her, not about her in her presence...

I'll be keeping you all my my thoughts as well..
