Remembering Dan Ebeling

Today's a bit of a sad day.  It would have been my friend's birthday.

I only knew Dan for a very short time.  During my first (and only) year at IUP, Dan asked me to join him playing bass in 10 O'Clock Jazz Band.  I wasn't very accomplished at that age (18) compared to others in the band but I think Dan saw the potential I had and wanted to help me grow as a musician.  Thanks to him and many others at IUP, grow I did during that year.  At the end of the school year, Dan asked me to perform beside him during his Master's Recital.  I remember being very honored that he asked me.  Dan was a great musician and, to me, and even better friend.  He is missed.
