You’re the last person I will love / You’re the last face I will recall / And best of all / I’m not gonna miss you

Moved to care facility


Campbell is moved to a memory care facility in Nashville after dealing with Alzheimer’s for the past three years. Campbell’s wife, Kim Woolen:

There were five of us taking care of him and we were all completely exhausted. No one was getting any sleep and we were just struggling every second to keep him safe – we felt like it wasn’t safe anymore.

Campbell’s daughter, Ashley:

[It can be dangerous] with all the household appliances and dish soap liquid and olive oil. He’ll drink anything … if you lose concentration for a second, he could hurt himself.
