Default Prayers for Randy

This was just posted to the Fan Page for 100.3 The Sound radio station:

Quote:
‎100.3 FB FANS: All of you who are Eagles fans, know the story and the history by now of the departure of Bernie Leadon, Randy Meisner, and Don Felder from the band (and the joining of Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit). The turmoil of this band is as well known as the beauty of their music. I bring this up, as Randy Meisner, sadly, has both Alzheimers and a very bad progression of dementia. (without getting too personal), I ask all of you to say a prayer and keep a prayer for original Eagles founding member Randy Meisner, who is struggling with his health, as he is now in permanant retirement at his Studio City home.

Note from administrator sodascouts :This rumor is false. Randy is not suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's. - updated April 2, 2013

Thanks Austin. I just heard about this but I hadn't got over the shock enough to post it here. Its terribly sad and my thoughts and prayers go out to him. I knew he wasn't doing well but I didn't expect anything like this.

As most of you know the HC lineup is my fav and Randy is my favorite bassist in the Eagles.

It's very sad and I will keep him in my prayers.

I just read this on Facebook as reported by radio station 100.3. I was very upset to hear this news. I heard that he has not been doing that great, but he is too young to be suffering from Alzheimer's & dementia. This is so sad. Very upset tonight.. Prayers going out to Randy & his family..

Unfortunately these diseases have no age boundaries. My thoughts and prayers are with Randy and his family during this difficult time. (This news is especially bittersweet, coming when it does. We're leaving tomorrow for a trip to Ohio for a memorial for my Gram who passed last June 22nd. In addition to her cancer she also suffered with dimentia.)

I woke up to an email this morning with the link that Austin posted. This saddens me so much. I have sent an email. I hope it gives his family some comfort to know so many fans are thinking of him.

BTW--Whitney, you were the first person I thought of when I saw this.
