The family of London, Kentucky’s Butch Blankenship is profiled on today’s (Dolly Parton) episode of The Nate Berkus Show.
Locally, the show airs on WTVQ and will repeat at 3 pm today on Insight Channel 138.
Blankenship was widowed earlier this summer when his wife Karin died of bacterial meningitis the day after the emergency delivery of the couple’s twins, a boy and a girl, who spent some time in the University of Kentucky’s neo-natal unit before Blankenship returned with them, and the rest of the family, to his parents’ home nearby.
The show redecorated the Blankenship family’s nursery (which was in progress at the time of the twins’ emergency early delivery), and created a backyard playground and memorial garden so that the family can now return to the couple’s original home.
