I won't pretend that I knew too much about Mr. Frey, or pretend to have been a huge fan of the Eagles, but I do know how a song can sneak up on you and play a big role in putting a place-holder on your heart to a special memory in your own life.

    For me, it's Frank Sinatra's "The Way You Look Tonight." Oh man, that song just kills me. It was my grandparents' favorite song, and I remember how at all the special family occasions both my parents and grandparents would always hit the dance floor to dance to that song. And when my grandfather was sick in bed in his last days on this earth 5 years ago,he would call out for my grandmother to put the song on and tell her to come on over to his bedside, and he'd hold her hand, and she'd dance a little around and he'd sing the song as best as he could to her. I can still see them dancing to the song at our wedding we held in our yard about 6 years ago -- and he died about a year later -- so I know how a song can capture your heart. We've been at a few family events since my grandfather's passing, and when that song has been played, I fall even more in love with my husband, as he doesn't skip a beat of being one of the first men out of their chairs and he extends his hand out for my grandmother to dance with him
    What originally brought me to this board earlier this year was not only to learn a little about a band my husband and I were planning to see last summer, but I came across a tidbit of info that Glenn Frey & my husband not only look so much alike, but they share the same birth date; although my husband only turned 32 yesterday, and our son turned 4 two days earlier on Nov. 4. I don't know too much about astrology, so I was interested to learn info about Glenn Frey to see if they shared any common traits -- but from what I've read about Mr. Frey on this forum -- I don't think they have too much in common.
    I know I had mentioned before that my husband worked his way through college performing in a band with his brothers in clubs all around NYC -- but I don't know if I ever mentioned that Glenn Frey happened to be at a couple of their shows, and they happened to talk before or after those shows. I know one of the shows was for a fundraising benefit that Mr. Frey attended.

    But one thing it appears they both share in common is that I couldn't have asked for a better husband, who always has my back -- and he is a phenomenal father -- and it sounds like Mr. Frey was a wonderful husband and father, as well.

    But one thing Matt and I discovered early on is that we have very different interior design styles. Matt is a phenomenal architect, who took a little rundown house we bought when we first got married and designed our absolute dream home, which he also built, along with help from his brothers, my father and my grandfather. But when we went to pick out furniture -- we had complete opposite tastes. I loved light, cotton fabrics -- and he liked dark leather furniture. He allowed me to have free reign of picking out all the furniture.

    So for his birthday yesterday I surprised him with replacing one of our living room sofas with a leather sofa. Even though it definitely changes the style of our living room a lot -- just to see how happy it makes him is worth it. This is the sofa that is sitting in my living room right now and my husband and son are cuddled up it watching Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown old repeat shows On Demand:

    I know many of you are still feeling grief today -- but take-in all the love around you.
    Carolyn - Thanks for your beautiful words. Such a beautiful story. You sound like one lucky girl who has an amazing husband. Happy Birthday to your son and Matt. Hope y'all had a great time at the sox game.

    Everyone has left such beautiful memories of Glenn. Dawn - I love that picture of Glenn !

    Some traits that my teenager shares with Glenn Frey: he's left-handed, he plays the piano and he is a bit arrogant too!

    One thing I noticed when I read about the Eagles for the first time was that half of them were Scorpio: Frey, Walsh and Schmit or signs of Water: Leadon (Cancer) and Meisner (Pisces). Emotional tension guaranteed! Well...Henley (Leo) added passion and Felder (Virgo) stability
    Hey now, lets not be poking fun at Virgos! Haha. I'm one. I actually fit the description of one too, pretty closely.

    Well I'm so sorry that I didn't get to post on Glenn's birthday, but he was certainly not forgotten. I started my day celebrating his amazing life by wearing my 'After Hours' tee shirt and ended it by going out to dinner and attending a JD Souther show in Nashville with my 'partner in crime', Sodascouts!

    I am forever grateful for Glenn and the contributions he made during his life. Although he left us far too soon, he definitely left his mark on this world. To paraphrase his lyrics, I thank goodness every day that he was 'part of something good' and left 'something good behind'. Actually, in true Glenn style, that is quite an understatement.

    I know that my post is late but I would like to add a little something to this existing thread if that's allright with you all :



    Thank you Glenn Frey for your contributions & sharing your gifts with this world. You have inspired & encouraged me to not only be a part of something good but to leave something good behind as well.
