Jeanene had just brought Townes home from the hospital where he had had a pin put in his hip and seemed to be in good spirits. When Jeanene discovered a little bit later that he was not breathing, she called 911 and started mouth-to-mouth, which she continued until paramedics arrived. They continued to try to revive him but to no avail. Suzannah noted that Hank Williams died on the same day. Guy and Suzannah are helping out. They ask to please not call at this time. No arrangements for services have been made at this time. If folks would like to send their best to the family, express grief, or submit other information, I suggest making use of the Townes Discussion Conference accessible from the Townes van zandt Lone Star Webstation, or from the Blue Sky Home Page, -Len Coop 9:20AM PDT, Jan 2, 1997 -- Leonard Coop
