CNN had the story on last night, very moving docudrama. Seeing a person that you have been familiar with all your life and now seeing him dealing with memory issues, was an eye opener. The story showed him being on tour during 2012 and how he was still able to preform for the audience but behind the scenes had issues with his memory. It was so sad to see how quickly he had advanced a year later, and the touring had to finally stop.
I believe if more famous well know people allowed us into their life while they were dealing with Alzheimer's, more people would now be paying attention.
His final recorded song/video was "I'm Not Gonna to Miss You" was really heart breaking. It has to do with him not going to remember his wife and family. It's on YouTube.
