Glen Campbell's Last Song. About Alzheimers.

Having an old mother with this disease and most of us probably knowing somebody with it, this song sums it up perfectly.

Musician Glen Campbell records a brutally honest song about Alzheimer's disease. [VIDEO]

Brilliant, brave and brutally honest as it states.

Coops.

Re: Glen Campbell's Last Song. About Alzheimers.

Thanks for sharing that, Coops.

Glen Campbell - “I'm Not Gonna Miss You”

I'm still here, but yet I'm gone
I don't play guitar or sing my songs
They never defined who I am
The man that loves you 'til the end
You're the last person I will love
You're the last face I will recall
And best of all, I'm not gonna miss you.
Not gonna miss you.
I'm never gonna hold you like I did
Or say I love you to the kids
You're never gonna see it in my eyes
It's not gonna hurt me when you cry
I'm never gonna know what you go through
All the things I say or do
All the hurt and all the pain
One thing selfishly remains
I'm not gonna miss you
I'm not gonna miss you

Re: Glen Campbell's Last Song. About Alzheimers.

Lost both my inlaws to the disease. Not pleasant. I'm going overboard if I get it so long as I can remember which way that is.
