One evening Ken Gray was having chest pains. According to his wife, Connie, he did not tell her, but calmly called 911 and let her know that an ambulance was on its way.
He was transported to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital and immediately went into surgery.
Despite the surgery, Connie was told that she had a very sick husband, and Ken was initially given three or four days to live.
A massive heart attack had put a hole in the bottom of his heart.
