Ken and his wife Carolyn found out Ken had bladder cancer in 1993. For Ken and Carolyn and their four children, this was a very difficult time. Ken started going to the doctor’s at least once a year for the doctor to scrape the tumors out of his bladder. After each procedure he would have to wait three months and then go back for a check-up and on April 15, 2005 he found out the cancer had spread.
“At the time we found out the cancer had spread it was time for chemo and by this time Ken and I were divorced,” said Carolyn. “Ken was undergoing some difficult interferon treatments during 2000-2003 and his attitude changed toward the family, we were divorced on paper but not in our hearts.”
For Father’s day of this year Carolyn wanted to do something very special for Ken and that is when she found Reminderband. She ordered 20 wristbands with Ken’s favorite saying from Star Trek “Make It So”.
“Ken loved the wristbands and was so thrilled and touched when he received them for Father’s Day,” said Carolyn.
Ken and Carolyn remarried on October 29, 2005 at 10 a.m. and Ken passed away that evening at 6:50 p.m.
“I held Ken’s hand and told him that it was time to go home and he didn’t have anything to worry about here,” said Carolyn.
Carolyn said she is going to wear her wristband until the day she goes home to be with Ken. She hasn’t taken her wristband off since the day she got them for Ken and will wear it forever as a constant reminder of a best friend.
