    I hurried home and I made it just in time. At 4:10:



    I said a prayer also, and shed a few tears. I've been listening to his music all day whenever possible, and thinking about him.

    We miss you, Glenn!

    Well, I missed the exact time, but it was 3:59pm Central when I saw that first tweet retweeted onto my feed. Going back into my Twitter archive puts another pit in my stomach.

    But I had a moment earlier today... I began listening to Eagles tunes for a little while and cried it out to My Man while hugging my dog, so that helped. My HOTE tour shirt was also the first shirt I pulled out of the drawer this morning, so that's a coincidence.

    I've been thinking about him all day. Damn it, Roach, I miss you. But your music will always be there.

    I lit a candle and played Desperado. He hasn't been far from my thoughts today.

Sometimes when we least expect it a song or a memory or an incident triggers it off again. I'm suggesting that some time this evening (I'd suggest the time you heard about it - for me it was 10:11 pm GMT) each one of us just stops and lights a candle or turns on a candle or light app on their phone. Or release a balloon. Or raise a tequila sunrise to him Or whatever you feel is appropriate. Even just stand still. And if you pray, say one for Glenn. It can be a gesture of unity with each other and solidarity with Glenns family and friends and band mates.
    Well, it was yesterday for me. I thought about him all day but I'm afraid I did nothing like that. It didn't even occur to me to do so. to those who did.

    Although, thinking about it, it's 9.00 am here on the 19th, which is the time I found out about it.

    May he rest in peace & I am thinking of his family & friends, and bandmates.

    I was busy with schoolwork, but afterwards, I thought of him and said a prayer. I just heard New Kid in Town on the radio, and I got a little teary-eyed. It still hurts almost as much as it did 6 months ago.

    I have to guess the time I read the news by way of a Google alert. I had just gotten into bed & turned on my iPad to check my emails & The Border (of course). I don't have a very regular bed time & it seems to me that I turned in earlier that usual that night. I think about 10:30 is a good guess.

    As I am experiencing an episode of my inner ear disorder I think that I better forgo the tequila sunrise that I mentioned in my earlier post. I think I will listen to the song instead & play some more of Glenn's music, light a candle & pray for his family & those close to him.

    I had Glenn on my mind on and off all day today. He was the first thing that popped in my mind when I woke up this morning. I was really busy at work, but every time I had a lull of any kind I thought of him. Then, on my drive home, I put in the Strange Weather CD and listened to my favorite songs since the drive isn't long enough to play the entire thing. When I got home, I sat in my driveway and finished listening to POMPOY. As I took out the CD and was putting it back in it's case, I began tearing up. On one hand, it's hard to believe it's been 6 months and on the other hand, it seem like an eternity.

    I've been really busy yesterday due to a family emergency but I while I was waiting in the ER, I started to think about Glenn and couldn't believe that it was 6 months since his passing - doesn't seem like any time has passed since then but at least his is still in all our thoughts and will be for a long time to come.

    ETA: My 90 yo aunt fell and broke her hip but she had a hip replacement operation this morning so hopefully she'll be up and running around again soon

    L101, I hope everything works out ok.

    I saw Glenn in person for the first time just last July in Little Rock, and yet I feel like I've lost an old friend. I look at the band photos, and there he is, still smiling at us, and it's difficult to realize that he is really gone. I guess that's just how it is. I'm in agreement with those who have reminded us all that Glenn lives on- in our hearts, and through his music.
