Some tragic losses this year...
Terry Breese, co-founder and co-owner of Huber Breese Music as well as Southern Thumb Music, both in southeast Michigan. Terry was a longtime exhibitor at the Chicago Drum Show, a career music educator and the consummate supporter of the percussive arts. And all-around nice guy. Terry passed away suddenly and unexpectedly just before this year's show, which was dedicated to his memory.

I am headquartered in my home town of Alma, a central-Michigan town of 10,000. The community was rocked last week by news of a tragic plane crash. The superintendant of schools Don Pavlik was being airlifted to the Mayo clinic for cancer treatment accompanied by his wife Irene, his doctor and friend Dr. Jim Hall, pilot Jerry Freed and copilot Earl Davidson. The plane went down in Lake Michigan with Jerry the only survivor. For more details, just google "plane crash near Ludington" or search the stories at the site of the local paper, The Morning Sun.
