Thank you, Apple.
You have touched a lot of lives here and shared so much so generously - you'll always be with us.
May love, peace and music be with you.

Even after throwing out the high and low score, the only scores left are still all high! What a unique and wonderful person Apple is who went out of her way to bring happiness and friendship to everyone she touched.

Thank you Apple for just being you.

apple,

you and i go way back. i feel as if we have actually met and have spent a lot of time together.

you are leaving a beautiful legacy--your beautiful children, your community and family at home that love you, and the community you helped to build here online.

you are irreplaceable and you will be missed terribly by all.

wishing for you peace and love and music as you leave us, sweet poet.

It is quite amazing how you can feel connected to people you've never met in person, value and esteem them, appreciate them, and grieve for them.

Apple, you made a wonderful contribution here, you will be missed indeed.

I pray that your heart and mind are at peace, and for the consolation of your loved ones.

(I'll just add, since this was said so well, that somehow, somewhere, in a better, kinder world, sometime in the future, where we sincerely hope there will be pianos and music, that we will meet in person. In essence, Apple was one person on here I always felt that I knew and perhaps she knew me too.)

While I've never interacted with Apple personally, I always look forward to and enjoy her posts when lurking in Pianists Corner. Apple, best wishes to you, and I am thinking of you and your loved ones.

Apple: You are a bright shining light and the epitome of grace and kindness. I always smile when I read your signature "love and peace, Õun (apple in Estonian)". May you be surrounded by love and filled with peace.

My best wishes to you Apple.

I live on the other side of the world and my approach to music is poles apart from hers, but she once took a great deal of trouble to help me in an exchange of messages about a technical issue - a remarkably generous and broadminded soul. I am very saddened.

Thanks for posting this wonderful video of Mary playing the Aria from the Goldberg. It's like a gentle kiss goodbye from one of the shining lights of this forum. You'll be missed, Apple.

So sad. A kindred spirit for the many years I spent on the old forums. One of those people I wish I had met, and swapped choir keyboard notes! I wish you peace, sweetheart, and may we finally jam at that great piano party in the great beyond. Love!

I've been reading her posts for ten years and
feel as if I know her somehow. I'm at a loss for words. Prays sent.


Do or do not. There is no try.

LilyLady's pic has to be my all time favorite picture of Mary.

I count myself oh so lucky that I was able to meet her in person AND hear her play.

For sure BeeLady.

I so wish I'd had the chance to meet her in person.

But I am very thankful that in a small way I was able to provide a forum for her to reach so many people who were/are so glad to have known her.

What a testament to Apple to see so many old posters here among the newer who have been touched by Apple's touch.

I'm going to miss her very much and I'm clearly not alone. :-(

My word! I have been away for a couple of years from posting, though sometimes reading. I have always enjoyed Apple's posts, especially her accompanist stories. As so many others have said, she seemed like a friend, always caring and seeing humor in life. I feel blessed to have known her here in the forums.
