Glen Campbell is in the final stages of Alzheimer's Disease. The situation is heartbreaking for family, friends and fans. According to his wife, Kim, he's lost most of language skills, but she tells The Tennessean, "He still has his essence."
Glen's wife and children visit him regularly at the facility he's staying at. His daughter Ashley, who toured with her Dad for a bit, brings her guitar to play for him.
Kim Campbell, who has become an advocate for families affected by Alzheimer's, references a song on Glen's album Ghost on the Canvas that opens with the words: "I know a place between life and death for you and me." She compares it to how one feels when a family has been affected by the disease.
