Last Sunday, my sister called to tell me that Dan Fogelberg had died. He was 56. For many of you spring chickens, that news doesn’t send your heart strolling down memory lane, but for me, it was his song, “Longer” that was sung at our wedding. It was his lyrics in “Same Old Lang Syne” that painted the picture of a chance meeting with an old love on Christmas Eve. And it was his music that brought nostalgic sorrow as he sang the loving tribute to his father in “Leader of the Band.” His words were gifts and his messages were endearing. Summing it up, someone remarked “Dan said so many things that my heart only knew how to feel.” Thanks, Dan for the reminders to love and to say “I love you” through song. Though Dan is now gone, his music lives as a gift and a legacy.
