Dan Fogelberg~ goodbye, Dear Dan

I just got news from my sister that our beloved Dan Fogelberg passed away today.

Here is the story and there's lots more out there. This is the first account I found so I'm posting it!


Singer-Songwriter Dan Fogelberg Dies

By NEKESA MUMBI MOODY – 1 hour ago

NEW YORK (AP) — Dan Fogelberg, the singer and songwriter whose hits "Leader of the Band" and "Same Old Lang Syne" helped define the soft-rock era, died Sunday at his home in Maine after battling prostate cancer. He was 56.

Please read the story here~

Those of you who know me  or have read my writings over the past couple of years will know how deeply saddened I am with this news.

As I mentioned just yesterday on my blog - Dan's Christmas music has become a tradition  with me, and I had linked to a site to share  some of it with you, my friends here!  I had plans to play  his Christmas cd tonight...and I will do that , still... but with tears! 

I'm sorry I can't get my thoughts together so I will go for now.

I'm so sorry to read this. I hadn't heard this news. He had some beautiful recordings, my favorite being "Longer" and "A Love Like This".

early detection is the key, every man should have a prostate PSA test. So sad.
