One of the first songs I remember liking as a very little kid was "Rhinestone Cowboy"...

Many forget that he did do a little acting as well; he was in True Grit with John Wayne. I am old enough to remember his "Hi, I'm Glen Campbell" at the start of his variety show...

I'm even old enough to remember his variety show was a summer replacement for The Smothers Brothers Show. -- at first

I was a casual fan only but what really struck me was the grace and dignity that he and his family showed as his cognitive skills declined recently. Most of us have faced or will face something similar with a loved one and his example makes it just a touch easier.
