Earlier this week, Glen Campbell's wife, Kim, revealed that five years after his first diagnosis, he is now in the final stage of Alzheimer's Disease.

Glen is currently being cared for in a Nashville memory care facility, where his wife and their children visit him often. The couple's children play music for their father during their visits, since he is no longer able to sing or play guitar. 

"He cannot play guitar anymore," Kim told the Tampa Bay Times. "I don't even know if he knows what it's for."

Since Glen has now lost the ability to speak as well, he has a hard time communicating with his family members. Still, Kim says that he seems to be doing well and is in good spirits.

"Glen's getting great care, he's happy, he's cheerful," she said. "He's healthy but he has lost most of his language skills. He doesn't understand anything anyone is saying to him. "

Even though Glen is no longer able to speak and doesn't seem aware of everything happening around him, Kim says there is one thing he's always maintained awareness of...his faith.

"Faith has always been the central part of our relationship," she said. "I'm so pleased that as Glen has entered the later stages of this illness, it's evident that he has retained his awareness of God."

Despite everything they've been through, it is the couple's faith that has helped Glen and Kim stay strong, even during this difficult time. We send our heartfelt prayers to Glen, Kim, and the rest of the Campbell family.
