As a country music lover, longtime Glen Campbell and Tim McGraw fan, and granddaughter of two amazing people who were unfortunately dealt Alzheimer’s disease, I can’t begin to tell you how moved I was by Tim McGraw’s cover of Oscar nominee Glen Campbell’s “I’m Not Gonna Miss You.” The song is from the documentary, “Glen Campbell… I’ll Be Me” and is based on the country legend’s current battle with this horrific disease that cannot be prevented and has no treatment options.
Alzheimer’s disease does not discriminate, it doesn’t care what your occupation is, how much you make, or how often you pray that your grandmother doesn’t get the same disease that robbed your grandfather of his memory when you were a child.
My thoughts and prayers are with each and every single person combatting Alzheimer’s disease and my fellow caregivers. You are stronger than you know.
Watch Tim McGraw perform “I’m Not Gonna Miss You”.
