Glen Campbell's Alzheimer Diagnosis

I was saddened to hear the news that Glen Campbell has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. My first memory of Glen and his music was listening to "By the Time I get to Phoenix" on my bunk at the Fort Bliss barracks in El Paso. "The Wichita Lineman" and "Gentle on my Mind" were other favorites from back in those days.

I am hopeful that a cure will eventually be found but until then my heart goes out to people like Glen and their families.

What is your favorite Campbell song?

  1. I was also saddened to hear about his diagnosis. My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease when she was 72, and she died a long, horrible death when she was 80. She disappeared before our eyes. She forgot how to talk, eat, and do the basic daily things of life. She died alone, in a nursing home. If I'd lived near her, I would hope that I would have been with her. I miss her.
