I'm sitting here listening to my Very Best of Linda Ronstadt album via iTunes. I don't know how I stumbled across Linda tonight while on my computer, but I did. I saw a recent photograph of her and was shocked at how different she looked. I guess most of that was weight-related, which I totally understand. After all, the woman is sixty-nine. What I did NOT know is that she is suffering from Parkinson's Disease. As much as I've always loved her songs, I never really followed her closely, so I had no idea she was sick. I found this article—click here—on her condition, although it's from 2014. My father-in-law suffered from Parkinson's. Just like Linda says in this article, it takes a long time to die from the disease, and most die from something else first, just as my father-in-law did with his cancer. But anyway ... I wish Linda well.
