Although country music legend Glen Campbell is enduring a heartbreaking battle with Alzheimer’s, the singer has continued to be surrounded and praised by friends and family, including his wife Kim Campbell. The blonde beauty has admirably remained beside her husband throughout his diagnosis and progression into the advanced stages of Alzheimer’s, continuously updating fans and friends with the help of her blog, careliving.org.
Kim drafted a heartfelt post dedicated to her husband, celebrating his 81st birthday by reminiscing on the reasons that she fell in love with the star. “Although Alzheimer’s could have sent him in to depression and retreat, Glen was filled with determination to continue doing what he loved to do, surrounded by friends, family and his adoring fans,” she doted.
She went on to admire Campbell’s ability to live in the moment, writing, “He laughs and giggles and sings little melodies all day, whether someone is there to hear them or not. I am actually quite inspired by his peace and contentment and am striving to find the same in my own life.” As the singer’s stages progress, Kim admits that she’s no longer sure if the icon remembers friends and family to any extent, although always greeting his visitors with a beaming smile.
Readers broke into tears as the star’s loving wife heartbreakingly revealed, “Even on the days when it seems that he doesn’t know who I am, when I nestle into his arms, he instinctively holds me just like he used to. There must be some magic to muscle memory because as I melt into his embrace, he sighs and squeezes me as if he knows I belong there and is trying to comfort me. I find incredible peace in these moments and I think he does too.”
Campbell celebrated his birthday on April 21st, as he was showered with love from his family, friends, and fans. Keep up the fight, Glen, and please keep this legend in your prayers.
