Singer Jay Allen’s mom, Sherry Rich, passed away in February 2019 after her battle with Alzheimer’s, according to the Taste of Country website. The singer asked fans in a post on Instagram to celebrate her life and to continue to share her story “until we finally end this thief of a disease.” The performer estimated at that time that his song, “Blank Stares,” had raised so far more than $25 million in the fight against Alzheimer’s.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful, heartfelt song of love, desperation, support, and strength.
Words so well put together. Love from mother to child, child to mother. Thank you.
