    Default Glen Campbell

    This is not a happy note, but this is a sad-but beautiful song, which will be (is) his last song ever. He has ALZ. and is now progressed to being in a facility. So sad.

    I saw this on my FB yesterday, and saved it, such a beautiful song to his wife and family. So sad, he can't play the guitar anymore, and he doesn't remember his songs. Made me cry. It's such a sad disease that robs you of your memories, and cuts your life short. My best friend is going through this with both her parents, her mother has Alzheimer's and her Dad just passed away from Dementia. She s an only child, and her parents don't even remember her. Her mother is my moms best friend for the past 53 years, and my mom babysat her daughter until she was 11 years old, we grew up together, and her mom doesn't recognize my mom or me. I'm so sad when I see her in the home, but she is so happy in her own little world.

    I know it is so sad. My Dad had it-but I was always so thankful that he knew that I was his daughter. He wasn't sure if it was me or my sister, but he always knew. The worst is when they don't remember who their own children are.Praying for your best friend-I know it is heart breaking.

    @Manydogs & @Vikinggirl...

    Your stories touch my heart, as y'all know, this has been happening to
    my Mother and I've cared for her these past 4 years once she began
    not knowing me (or others). I lift all of us, touched by this disease,
    left heartbroken, robbed of our loved ones whilst still living and broke,
    financially, emotionally & physically (if only their caregiver) up to GOD's
    love & mercy...so many dealing with this devastating disease.

    I cried hearing Glen Campbell's song too and wish his family the best.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    This is absolutely heartbreaking… I grew up listening to Glen Campbell, and this so reminds me of my dad. My heart just breaks for those of you that are dealing w/this horrid disease @Manydogs @Vikinggirl @Texas Carol I can't even imagine how hard this is on you. Sending all of you lots of hugs and prayers...

    Thank you Lynn and Carol, it's hard to watch when people you love go through Alzheimer's , it's such a slow progressing but devastating disease, you see small changes at first, forgetfulness, confusion, angry outbursts, changes in behaviour, and wandering off. Then the time comes when your loved ones don't recognize you, and become a shell of themselves, and you can't communicate with them anymore. I can't imagine what you go through everyday Carol, and how you cope along with your own grief, and health problems everyday. You are a very loving, and extremely strong person. I haven't dealt with this with a parent or grandparent, but my friends mom was like a second mom to me growing up, and I see how she's declined over the years, and she doesn't recognize anyone anymore, my friend lost her mom, and my mom lost her best friend of 53 years. She is in a home now, and when we go to see her, she sits and smiles, but just stares, and she sleeps a lot. It's so sad that we live our whole life working, then retire to end up not remembering your whole life. It's heartbreaking. God bless everyone who is going through this or have experienced it with loved ones.
