I remember you, Dan, when we sat next to each other in music theory class at Forest Park High School. I remember thinking of what an extraordinary and kind person you were. So easy to talk to at a time when I had difficulty talking to anyone. You always made my day brighter. So sorry to hear of your passing. Even though you are missed terribly, heaven is a brighter place with you in it.
