In Memoriam - Dan Fogelberg *Mrs. Jean Fogelberg*

"His strength, dignity, and grace in the face of the daunting challenges of this disease were an inspiration to all who knew him." --

Good Mourning, Everyone!

Joy to you and me.

Welcome famous widow, Jean Fogelberg, wife of famous US singer, Dan Fogelberg, to the club nobody wants to join.

Dan Fogelberg, winner of platinum and multiplatinum records was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer in 2004. He died at his Maine residence with Jean at his side. He was age 56.

Jean married Dan in Santa Fe, New Mexico, April 7, 2002.

To Jean Fogelberg, Griefcase extends sincerest condolences and wishes for mourning joy all the days of your life.

Mourning Quote: From the poem, Magellan Street, 1974, by Maxine Kumin

"Of course you move on,

my circumnavigator.

Tonight as I cruise past your corner,

a light goes on in the window.

Two shapes sit at a table.

After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen. Open what I lovingly refer to as a joy-nal, and write something.

Go ahead.

I dare you.

Have a joy-filled day, Everyone. And remember, we're not alone.

  1. I, like many others are in grief of the passing of Dan Folgolberg. I pray for him and his family. NO ONE SHOULD EVER HAVE TO DIE OF CANCER. See Dr. Block, Block Medical Center, Evanston, Illinois. One more thing, do you know of anyone that had anything out of the ordinary hapen to them after John Lennos's passing? Thank you, Rick
