Same Auld Lang Syne, In Memory of Dan Fogelberg

I did miss this one. With all the helter skelter with the caroling group, I didn't online for few days.

I fall in love with his songs when I heard his song at the first time. I can't remember when but sure enough, many of his songs were engrave in my mind. Just listening his songs requires you to understand the deep meaning of his lyrics. One by one, great artist leaving us.

Dear friends,

Dan left us this morning at 6:00am . He fought a brave battle with cancer and died peacefully at home in Maine with his wife Jean at his side. His strength, dignity, and grace in the face of the daunting challenges of this disease were an inspiration to all who knew him.

In May of 2004, Dan was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer.

A personal letter from D.F.

I cannot adequately express my gratitude to all of the thousands of wonderful people who have sent such incredibly moving and supportive e-mails via the Living Legacy web site. It is truly overwhelming and humbling to realize how many lives my music has touched so deeply all these years. Each one of you who have taken the time and effort to reach out to Jean and I have helped immeasurably to uplift our spirits and keep us looking strongly forward during some very rough moments. I thank you from the very depths of my heart.

I currently have no plans to return to the concert stage or the recording studio in the foreseeable future, but who knows? At least for now, I prefer to keep my options open.

Again my deepest thanks and love to all,



Rest in peace, Dan. May God bless your soul.
