Ashley Campbell just honored her father, Glen Campbell, in such a beautiful way. Pulling her guitar across her shoulder, she sang to the crowd,
Bone for bone we are the same
Bones get tired and they can’t carry all the weight
We can talk until you can’t even remember my name
Daddy don’t you worry, I’ll do the remembering
For Ashley, her dad’s publicly coming out as an Alzheimer’s patient meant giving his fans an opportunity to motivate him to keep up his musical work, even if that meant sitting through a song or two with words missing or sung in the wrong key.
“He loved being in the moment, so I tried to just be in the moment,” Ashley said.
Glen Campbell’s Alzheimer’s disease has taken a turn for the worse. The only way his family is able to communicate with him is through music.
Despite Campbell’s ability to remember or speak much, he remains positive, Ashley told People’s Country. She acknowledged that faith and music has helped the family get through each day.
