Dear Family and Friends,
I am very sad to inform you that my husband Kevin Blount passed away
in the Intensive Care Unit of Norwalk Hospital, Connecticut, at 10am
on Tuesday May 30th 2006. Subarachnoid hemorrhage of the posterior
inferior cerebellar artery aneurysm caused the sudden and unexpected
death. Study of the CT scan images indicates that the damage from the
initial massive hemorrhage was the most severe and irreversible.
Medical studies suggest that most aneurysms within the brain are
congenital. Prior to his death, Kevin had shown no symptoms of brain
aneurysm and had been in excellent health. Kevinâ?Ts hemorrhage
occurred on Sunday evening May 28th while we were having dinner with
friends. The bleeding caused Kevin to lose consciousness and fall.
He was rushed to the hospital by ambulance. After the fall, his body
struggled to repair the damage but he never regained consciousness.
A memorial service is planned as follows:
2:00pm Saturday June 17th 2006
Sacred Heart University
5151 Park Avenue
Fairfield, CT 06825
If I had missed anyone on the list, it was unintentional. Please feel
free to inform those you think will appreciate the information.
If you plan to attend the service, please let me know at your earliest
convenience so that we can make necessary arrangements.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to WSHU:
