Glen Campbell announced last year that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, a disease that doesn’t leave much hope for the long term.
My father-in-law passed away in January from the disease, trust me, Alzheimer’s is a bitch.
Now Glen’s recovering drug addict son has realized that he may not have that long left to reunite with his father and is reaching out.
Kane, who has battled drug addiction and recently was released from a California prison after being incarcerated on vandalism charges, recently reached out to guaranteed-payday The National Enquirer to let the world know that he wants to reunite with his father but isn’t having much luck.
He tells the rag mag, “I know I haven’t led the life my father would have liked, but I still love him and I’d do anything to see him again,” Kane said. “I got out of prison about a year ago and I’m sober and trying to get my life back on track.”
“I don’t want my dad to die thinking I was the son who never got his life together,” Kane added. “I just want one more chance to tell him that I love him and that I’m sorry – and I want to say goodbye.”
According to the magazine, they contacted Glen and his response was: “I’ve heard my son Kane is out of prison and I would be glad to help him out.”
Sigh. If you want to reunite with your father, I somehow don’t think going to The National Enquirer is the right way to do it.
Let’s just hope these two can mend fences before it’s too late.
