James Robison’s Tribute to Friend Glen Campbell: ‘Thanks for the Truly Precious Memories’

By The Stream Published on August 9, 2017

Country music singer Glen Campbell died yesterday at the age of 81 following a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. His family first posted the news on Facebook

On Tuesday, The Stream founder James Robison posted a heartfelt tribute on Facebook to his friend who sang at many of his Bible conferences. Glen was also a guest on James’ television show, Life Today. (And, it seems, lost many a round of golf to the evangelist.)

James wrote in part, “Goodbye my friend. We will see each other again soon and be forever alive, rejoicing in the presence of our Lord Jesus. May God comfort Kim and all your family and friends.” James added, “You were a great encouragement to those who have helped us share Christ around the world. Thanks for truly precious memories.”

Read James’ tribute below. Then watch and enjoy Glen performing at one of James’ Bible conferences and speaking about the “light” of Jesus:
