80’s Music Rules ~ Music to Grieve By

August 24, 2012

Dear Dan,

Rest in peace my best friend, my constant companion, my beloved. You fought valiantly against the horror of a disease, Churg Strauss Syndrome, that left your body ravaged and destroyed. But the illness never dampened your strong will, your courage, nor your wicked sense of humor. We both made sure it never stole your dignity, nor your indomitable spirit.

Thank you for the best years of my life, for being my biggest fan, and for always cheering me on when I felt lost and defeated. In return, I hope that you knew how much I loved (and will always love) you and how strongly I encouraged your daily fight. I am a better person because of you, and a lost soul without you.

You are forever my role model and my hero.

All my love,

  6. I came across your site when I was remembering an old forgotten band from my youth -The Icicle Works, for what it’s worth – and your writing style impressed me that I spent a good hour there. In that time, I read several times about Dan.
    I don’t really know where I’m going with this, or even why I’m writing to you, a stranger, ten years on. I guess I just want to say that I hear your pain, I’m sorry for your loss and I wish you peace in your heart.

    Sorry this got weird!
