This Weeks eatured Artist - Dan Fogelberg

Our featured artist for the week of September 23 - September 30, 2009 is a true blue
American legend. Born and raised in Peoria Illinois, Dan was learning to play a
guitar starting in his 14
year and given to him by his grandpa by using a Mel Bay chord book. Just like the
one I used, and maybe you too! Dan's musical heritage is rich in talent. His mom,
Margaret a classically trained pianist and his dad, Lawrence, the high school band
leader immortalized in Dan's classic song "Leader of the Band", from his 1981 two
record album "The Innocent Age", endowed Dan with skills and talents that would day
make him, indeed, an American legend.
Dan Fogelberg died at his home in Deer Isle, Maine on December 16, 2007 with his
wife by his side. Dan had been diagnosed with prostate cancer, but that diagnosis
came to late for successful treatment. Dan's last with was for his wife to do what
she could using his fame to prevent other men from the same fate.
Dan's final album, released this week is being used to help make Dan's last request
possible. All proceeds from the sale of this CD, from here at Music for Sight and
from Dan's own web site,
, will go to prostate cancer research.

prostate cancer research, and most importantly, make an appointment with your doctor
to get your prostate checked. Do it for Dan. Do it for yourself... do it today!

Southeastern Guide Dog school Announces Memorial Garden

The campus of Southeastern Guide Dog School is located in Palmetto, Florida, a
small town south of Tampa. The campus is about 3 or 4 miles from the town of Palmetto
in a rather secluded area. The grounds of the campus are large and beautifully landscaped.
And in a quiet corner of the grounds a new Memorial Garden is being installed to
give us all a private area to memorialize and remember the amazing guides who gave
everything of themselves and asked nothing of us in return except to love them.
Here is an excerpt from the email I received from Southeastern. , "Located in the
southwest corner of the Southeastern Guide Dogs campus, this garden
is a quiet, contemplative spot. Features include opportunities to memorialize a beloved
dog in a beautifully landscaped area.
The garden is visually segregated from surrounding areas and offers the fragrance
of Florida flowers and a unique sense of peaceful remembrance of a dog that has a
special place in your heart. Opportunities for memorials of your dog include bricks,
river rocks and benches.
Concrete Bench…”
To get all the details on the Memorial Garden and how you can memorialize your guide,
or the guide of someone you know, send an email to
or visit our
