Glen Campbell's Widow Opens Up About the Emotional Final Days of His Alzheimer's Battle: 'There's a Sense of Relief'

  Glen Campbell's Widow Opens Up About the Emotional Final Days of His Alzheimer's Battle: 'There's a Sense of Relief' “There was a time when all I could remember was the sickness,” Kim Campbell tells PEOPLE of the Alzheimer’s disease that took her husband Glen Campbell‘s life on Aug. 8. “But now that he’s passed, the good memories are starting to flood back in.” Three months after the country legend’s death at the age of 81, his wife of 34 years opens up to PEOPLE about their family’s journey, her husband’s final days and her plans for her next mission: helping other families coping with Alzheimer’s through her website, CareLiving.org. Glen married Kim — his fourth wife — in 1982, when he was 46 and she was 24. He was country music’s Grammy-winning “Rhinestone Cowboy” and she was a dancer. The couple settled in Phoenix and had three children. “He was 22 years older than me but age didn’t matter between us – he was so young at heart and excited about ordinary things. Life was just beautiful.” In late 2010, when Glen was 74, he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. The “Wichita Lineman” embarked on a farewell tour in 2012 that eventually totaled 137 dates, and he allowed a film crew to chronicle his slow decline as the disease took hold. The resulting 2014 documentary, I’ll Be Me, was nominated for an Oscar for best original song for “I’m Not Going to Miss You.” “The goodbye tour was one of the biggest blessings for Glen that anyone could have imagined. The doctors emphasized to us that music was stimulating for the brain and it would be healthy for him. It was Glen’s choice to do the film.
