Dear Apple
I just saw the pink ribbon on my front page. Although we've never crossed paths or many posts, I am sure the forum was all the richer for your contribution.
I'm glad you've got so much loving support.

We will remember our friend Apple forever and we will be better for having known her.
Thanks for sharing yourself with all of us.

Bon Voyage!

Peace and love to you, dear sweet Apple and to your family and friends. You have touched so many people, perhaps more than you will ever know. I will forever think of you whenever I hear the Aria from the Goldbergs.

Add my voice to the choir. Apple represented the best of what we have here in this community and will be greatly missed and celebrated.

Apple,

I feel so fortunate that I had the opportunity to visit with you here in NY at that piano party. I really value all your contributions here and at WTF over the years (on many subjects, not just music). I don't have the right words, but please know that we all love you and hold you in our hearts.

Apple,

I am so sorry to hear this. You'll probably remember that we met twice, once at the Chicago Estonia meeting, and once when you generously opened your house in KC for the PianoWorld group to hear Brendan play. I came across a quotation just yesterday:

We're all dying fires. The question is, how will you burn?*

You've been a light of reason, good information, and sound advice for us on the forums, and we all regard you with fondness and respect. My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family in this part of your journey.

Jim

I wish we could keep you here forever Apple.
Wait, we will keep you here among us forever. In the thousands of posts you shared with us, in the way you
showed us how to enjoy life, in the way you showed us how to never give up, and how to love life.

Your legacy will out last all of us.

Know that you are much loved, and although you will be much missed, you will be remembered always.

I'll never forget Apple's delight at finally getting her Estonia piano, and the thought she put into naming it. The delight was so pure it was like a kid at Christmas. That memory will always stick with me because I have waited a long time to have my perfect piano like Apple had to. Her experience inspired me not to lose hope.

Aside from that, she is one of those rare people who doesn't get involved in narky disputes and just focussed on the joyful and positive aspects of the forum. A very admirable lady.

You rarely come across such sincerely kind and good-hearted people in life, let alone on the internet. She has my prayers.

I have never met Apple in person. We came close so many times... but I am honored to call her a friend, along with countless others whose lives she has touched.

A few years back Dr. Laul and I had offered to get her a hotel and fly her into Philadelphia when he was playing a concert here. Although she considered coming, she did not feel up to it. Indrek and I took this picture right before he played:

I am terribly sadden by this news, but find a smidgen of comfort from the knowledge, that her time in the hospice was short.

One of Apple's post that moved me the most, was the one below. It took me awhile to find Apple's post, but I remember it well.

Quote
Hay Alex,

I just want you to know how important this link has been to me lately. this is the only song i know 'by heart' so it's the only thing i play for people when i'm away from my music. I have NEVER had such a positive reaction to a piece of music. Everyone loves it. So thanks for sharing it a while back.




Rest In Peace, Apple.

I'm very sad to inform anyone and everyone who of knew my mother or knew of her, that she passed away this morning. We will never get to hear play the piano beautifully here anymore but we will when we are up there with her. Thank you for being there for her and helping her with anything there is to help with. She were so accepting of everyone, no matter the difference of them from her. You all are amazing. She loved you all as I know that you all loved her. She will see us all soon.

I'm heartbroken to hear of Apple's passing - what a dear, sweet person! I will always treasure the wonderful evening I spent with her and her beautiful family, the fabulous meal they cooked, her vibrant paintings, and the enchanting time we spent around her gorgeous piano, sharing our common love of music. Here is a picture she generously shared with me a few months ago, taken in front of her piano:

Rest in Peace, Apple. You will be sorely missed.

Apple was an amazing contributor on PW. Always positive. Always friendly. We are measured by the lives we've touched and after 16000+ posts she definitely touched many. I will miss her greatly.

Not even knowing she painted, I often thought that her comments were like bright primary color accents against a sometimes monochromatic background of opinions... she was painting from a palette all her own.

Many thoughts and prayers are with her family.
