Glen Campbell's Wife Kim Celebrates Late Husband's Memory in a New Book about Their Love Story
Kim Campbell has opened up about the great life she shared with her late husband, Glen Campbell, in a new book titled "On My Mind: In Sickness and in Health with Glen Campbell." The book gives fans a glimpse into the ups and downs of their marriage.
Although years have passed since his death, Glen Campbell’s widow, Kim Campbell, has written a tell-all book that not only addresses his life and struggles with addiction but also shares their sweet love story.
“To celebrate our remarkable life together, I am sharing our incredible love story in my new book, Gentle On My Mind: In Sickness and in Health with Glen Campbell.”
The tell-all memoir is going to be published on June 23 by Thomas Nelson. The media outlet recalled that the award-winning Glen had gotten married to Kim in 1982 despite the 22-year gap between them.
Kim stated that life between her and her late husband was good even after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2010 at the age of 74.
During their enviable years together, the couple raised three children, Cal, Shannon, and Ashley, in addition to the five children Glen had from three previous marriages.
Three months after the “Southern Lights” crooner’s death at the age of 81, his wife of 34 years opened up to People about her husband’s final days, their family’s journey, and her plans to help families who were struggling with Alzheimer’s disease.
Kim stated that life between her and her late husband was good even after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2010 at the age of 74. The diagnosis prompted the “Wichita Lineman” singer to not only embark on a farewell tour in 2012 but also to permit a film crew to document his slow decline as the disease took hold.
The many months of filming led to the creation and release of the 2014 documentary, “I’ll Be Me,” which got his hit song “I’m Not Going to Miss You" nominated for an Oscar.
“I feel like it’s a way to honor him, and I want to do everything I can to preserve his legacy and to share it with future generations.”
With that in mind, Kim decided to open a museum filled with videos, music and interactive displays, and artifacts, in his memory.
