For years Glen Campbell and his family have been bravely, very public, about the onset of dementia in Glen. This talented and prolific country music artist has released what they are calling his final song and music video.
In his own poignant words, when he sings “You’re the last person I will love” and later, “Best of all, I’m not gonna miss you”, he redefines the heartbreak of Alzheimers and other dementias from the perspective of the person that’s so well known and loved; who is physically here, yet actually gone.
Glen is now living in a twenty-four hour per day, long-term care facility but has chosen to share his lucid interpretation of his own “long goodbye”. Sources have stated that this is the last recording the original “Rhinestone Cowboy” will publicly release.
Listen, learn, love…..life is fleeting.
