I wasn’t really a fan until I watched the documentary on his announcement of living with Alzheimer’s disease. This is a disease which really hits home for me, my father-in-law was diagnosed quite a few years ago and it is traumatic to watch not only a loved one disappear, but to watch his wife and his daughter become not even memories. We are thankful for the time we still have with him. We are thankful that he still remembers his daughter, my wife, on most days. But, in the 5 years I have known him, 5 years ago yesterday we met, I have seen his decline with this terrible disease.
And so, it is with a heavy heart and all the love I have I can say, Rest In Peace, Glen Campbell. I have heard your song Rhinestone Cowboy and Wichita Lineman and I have watched your documentary on Hulu, and Netflix and you sir, have touched my life. I never knew you, but I thank you for the courage it took to allow the world into your battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
For Glen Campbell April 22, 1936 – August 8, 2017
