EXCLUSIVE

Casey Kasem Hospice
Casey Kasem
is living out the final days of his life by listening to the best days ... his family has been playing old recordings of his "American Top 40" show while he lay dying in hospice.

Casey is currently in a Washington hospice with his family by his side ... including his daughters, son, and brother.  Family sources tell us ... the family is playing old broadcasts of Kasem's legendary radio show ... the crowning achievement of his career.

Now that the family has stopped giving him medication, food, and water ... they're just trying to make him as comfortable as possible ... and they believe the broadcasts will give him great enjoyment.

Quit making up $hit, TMZ. Jesus Christ! A man can't even die without you making up crap just to report on it. Stop it!

That man needs to die with dignity. His wishes need to heard and I know that his wife doesn't want to hear that.

Another sign that the world has gone crazy. Casey Kasem is married to Jean Kasem, not to his children; the spouse has all rights. I'm on Jean's side, and if you can't understand that, you're simple minded like much of the world. Be original! Don't believe the first thing you hear about a story, wait for the facts to come out!

Just had this with my sweet hubby. Your decision was the right one. Hard as it was to make, the body stops processing food and/or nutrients then you have severe blockages. May God be with you all. Thank you for sharing him with us. He is a master at his craft.

Just My Opinion    

Good going family members, his hearing is the last thing to go. So keeping on playing that, and telling him you love him. I grew up listening to him, and I will always remember the good ole days. Casey will be truly missed, but will be in a better place.
